A Paynes Creek man has been given a long prison sentence for child molestation. 30-year-old Jeremy Edwards was arrested in March for committing sexual acts with a child under the age of ten. The victim was a close family member of Edwards’ girlfriend, and would often sleep over at Edwards house and share a bed with him and other family members. Sometimes Edwards would carry the victim to another room away from other family members and to commit the sexual assaults. The victim eventually reported to a family member what was happening. Convicted of continuous sexual abuse, Edwards was sentenced this week to 32 years in state prison.
