Child Rapist Gets Life In Prison

SOUTHPORT-- A Southport man will be going to prison for the rest of his life.

A jury deliberated for just 30 minutes before they found 35 year old Daniell Lenny Mills guilty today of two counts of sexual battery on a person younger than 12 and two counts of lewd or lascivious molestation.

Mills repeatedly raped an 8 year old girl between August 23rd and September 16th of last year.

The sexual battery convictions carry mandatory life sentences, so Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet sentenced mills to life immediately after the verdict.
