Child Molester Sentenced

A local man is being sent back to prison after being sentenced on molestation charges.

24-year-old Steven Ferris will be serving 15-years on a charge of lewd or lascivious molestation of a child.

At the Wednesday’s sentencing hearing, evidence was shown that Ferris had only been released from prison less than 3-years before this incident happened.

Circuit Court Judge Michael Overstreet found Ferris met criteria to be declared a prison release re-offender, so he will have to serve 100-percent of his 15-year sentence.
