A Muscogee County jury took about 90 minutes today to find Winfred Ottley guilty on several sexually related counts.
Ottley, 44, was sentenced to four concurrent life sentences by visiting Judge Richard Porter, court officials said.
Ottley was accused of molesting a young girl, who kept the rapes a secret until Mother’s Day weekend last year.
Ottley was arrested about 10 months ago. According to his defense attorney Michael Garner, he won’t be eligible for parole until he’s 74.

“It was just the situation of whether the jury believed the young lady or not,” Garner said. “Apparently, they did.”
