WARNER ROBINS -- A convicted child molester was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole.
Tevin Terome Carroll was convicted April 11 following a three-day trial on three counts of child molestation, according to a Houston County District Attorneys Office news release. The jury deliberated 2- 1/2 hours in reaching its verdict.
The release did not include any information related to the facts of the case or of the defense offered. Prosecutor Mark Anthony could not be reached for comment.
Following release from prison, Carroll will remain on probation for the remainder of his life, the release stated. He also will be required to register as a sex offender.
A special condition of his probation was no contact with the victims, and he was ordered to compensate the victims for counseling expenses not to exceed $5,000, according to the release.
The graphic nature of the abuse and the fact that it had been occurring over a long period of time, coupled with the young age of the children, made this case especially heart wrenching, Anthony stated in the news release. I am grateful that the jury was able to determine what had been taking place and that these children are finally safe from this predator.
