Clinch Co. child molester gets life, plus

CLINCH CO., GA (WALB) - A man facing child sex charges turned down a plea deal in Clinch County several months ago, but accepted it today.

Jarvis Henderson of Homerville pled guilty to rape, and other sex crimes in front of Judge Howard McClain Monday.

The judge sentenced him to life in prison, plus 25 years in prison.

"The plea of Henderson today ends what is one of the most heinous cases of child molestation this office has ever seen," said District Attorney Dick Perryman. "Henderson should never again be allowed access to children, and with this sentence, that is exactly what will happen."

"The Clinch County Sheriff's Office did a great job with this case. Also, my staff, especially Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Smith, did an outstanding job working this case up in preparing for trial," Perryman said.

Henderson is 31 years old.

Jarvis Andre Henderson was charged with nearly a dozen counts, for incidents dating back to 2014.
