BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Circuit Judge Lisa Dodson has sentenced a Biloxi man to serve 20 years in prison for the sexual abuse of a 3-year-old boy.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1G8kiNK) 32-year-old Jesse Frank Mouton will not be eligible for early release from prison.

Mouton was sentenced in Harrison County Court this week. He was convicted of sexual battery in a three-day trial that ended May 8.

The jury deliberated about five hours.

Assistant District Attorney Beth McFadyen said Wednesday the jury also found Mouton not guilty on other sexual-abuse charges involving the same child.
