Bainbridge child molester convicted

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - A mother is relieved after learning the man who molested her daughter will spend 15 years behind bars.

Kenneth Meredith was found guilty in Decatur County Superior Court of one count of felony child molestation, criminal attempt to commit a felony, and nine counts of sexual exploitation of children.

One of the victim's mothers says the guilty verdict gives her family closure.

"I broke down. I cried. I was so scared that it wasn't going to go the way it needed to go. And whenever they read guilty across the board, I just broke down. I lost it," said Ashley Lafferty.

Meredith will spend 15 years in prison followed by 35 years probation.
