Local Man Convicted for Molesting Two Girls


A Bay County jury has convicted a local man for molesting two girls.

Jurors found Rodney O'Neal Lockhart guilty of solicitation of a child for a sexual battery by a person in a familial or custodial position, and lewd and lascivious molestation.

Lockhart began having sexual contact with a young girl shortly after his wife died.

The activity continued into this year, when Lockhart fondled the breasts of another 14-year old girl.

Lockhart faces up to 20 years in prison.

Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet set his sentencing date for December 6th.
