Newton County jury sentences convicted child molester sentenced to life in prison

A convicted child molester was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday.

Thomas Anthony Sky, 43, was found guilty of aggravated child molestation, statutory rape, and three counts of child molestation, the Newton County District Attorney's Office said.

Prosecutors said the abuse was not reported for years until the victim was 12-years-old.

Officials said Sky was sentenced to life in prison without parole because of his extensive criminal history.
