GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Prosecutors say an Alabama man has been found guilty of sexual abuse of a child nearly five years ago.

Etowah County District Attorney Jody Willoughby tells local news media report that an Etowah County jury found 68-year-old Dale Emmett Ramsey guilty Tuesday after a 2011 incident involving two eight-year-old girls in 2011.

Willoughby says the girls told their parents that Ramsey offered them money if they would let him “play in their panties.” One of the children fled and saw Ramsey put his hands inside the other child’s pants.

Willoughby says the victim also said Ramsey touched and kissed the child on her private areas.

Ramsey is charged with sodomy and sexual abuse of a child less than 12 years of age. Ramsey is expected to be sentenced May 18.
