ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Prosecutors are pleased with a guilty verdict in what they say is one of the worst child molestation cases they've seen.

In a late Friday night verdict, 31-year old Tyrone Walker was convicted of 11-counts of rape and aggravated child molestation.

For more than two years prosecutors say he repeatedly assaulted two female family members.

Both were under the age of ten.

Walker will spend 50-years in Jail with no chance of parole. Prosecutors hope the verdict relays a strong message.

"I hope there's a predator watching TV and sees this sentence, he's going to end up in the same situation as this guy. Frankly the things this defendant did were unspeakable," Said Christopher Cohilas, Dougherty Chief Asst. District Attorney.

Before his sentence is complete Walker will be evaluated for possible chemical castration.
