ONEONTA, Ala. (AP) -- A Warrior man has been convicted of sexual
abuse and sodomy for abusing a child over a 7-year period that
started when the boy was 8 years old.
A Blount County jury on June 29 found 44-year-old Anthony
Papineau guilty of abusing the boy from the time the child was 8
until he was 15.
Blount County District Attorney Pamela Casey said the child suffered sexual abuse "almost on a daily basis."
Sentencing for Papineau has been scheduled for Sept. 15.
Casey said Papineau was employed by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Gardendale at the time of the abuse.
He was arrested last year in Utah.
Papineau's attorney, Bob Bentley of Oneonta, said his client
Papineau is being held in the Blount County Jail in Oneonta.
