A Houston County man convicted of molesting three young girls was sentenced to 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole and life on probation Friday.

Tevin Carroll was convicted of three counts of aggravated child molestation on April 11th after a three-day trial, according to a news release from District Attorney George Hartwig.

Carroll must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. He is also not allowed to have contact with the victims.

Prosecutor Mark Anthony said the victims were 7, 5 and 4 year-old girls. He would not comment on Carroll's connection to the girls.

Assistant district attorney Mark Anthony said in a news release, "The graphic nature of the abuse and the fact that it had been occurring over a long period of time, couple with the young age of the children, made this case especially hart wrenching. I am grateful that the jury was able to determine what had been taking place, and that these children are finally safe from this predator."

District attorney George Hartwig commented that, "The Houston District Attorney's office places the highest priority on protecting the children in our community. We will aggressively prosecute cases where the evidence points to sexual abuse of minors, and offenders need to be on notice that the consequences to convictions of this type will be severe."
