A South Georgia man is sentenced to life in prison for molesting a 5 year old girl.

A Dougherty County jury convicted 38-year old Loyce Harris of two counts of aggravated child molestation.

He was sentenced to life in prison with a chance for parole after 25-years.

Harris was sentenced to ten years in prison in 2009 in Worth County for molesting a 12-year old and a 13-year old girl.

He had already been released when the Dougherty County crime happened last year.

Harris must serve the remainder of that initial 10-year sentence before he begins his life sentence.
