BILOXI, Mississippi — Circuit Judge Lisa Dodson has sentenced a Biloxi man to serve 20 years in prison for the sexual abuse of a 3-year-old boy.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1G8kiNK) 32-year-old Jesse Frank Mouton will not be eligible for early release from prison.
Mouton was sentenced in Harrison County Court this week. He was convicted of sexual battery in a three-day trial that ended May 8.
The jury deliberated about five hours.
Assistant District Attorney Beth McFadyen said Wednesday the jury also found Mouton not guilty on other sexual-abuse charges involving the same child.
