Albany-- An man could face chemical castration for sexually abusing two young members of his family. First, Tommie Lee Clemmons will have to serve 30 years in prison, without the chance of parole.
A Dougherty County Jury found Clemmons guilty on four counts of child molestation. A fifth count against Clemmons was dropped after jurors announced they had verdicts on the other four.
The 32-year-old Clemmons was charged with molesting two boys, both under 10 years of age, for over two years.
Prosecutor Chris Cohilas said it was the worst case of child abuse he had seen in one and a half years specializing in the crime,and the first time he had asked for chemical castration. "Should he ever be released back into the public, that hopefully we can rest a little bit safer knowing that he is chemically castrated."
Judge Willie Lockette sentenced Clemmons to serve 30 years in prison without parole, then 20 more on probation.
At the end of his prison sentence, Judge Lockette ordered Clemmons to be evaluated for chemical castration.
