Albany-- An Albany man has been found guilty of molesting a young girl for nearly three years.
Jurors deliberated all day and returned guilty verdicts for 46-year-old David Lee Marshall around 5:30 Thursday afternoon. He was found guilty on Aggravated Child molestation, child molestation, and cruelty to a child. Jurors didn't reach a decision on a rape charge.
Marshall was handed a 50-year sentence, 30 of which he'll serve in prison. After sentencing, the rape charge was dismissed.
Once released from prison, Marshall will be banished from Dougherty County and all surrounding counties, he must register as a sex offender, and will be evaluated for chemical castration.
