PONTOTOC COUNTY, Okla. -- A Pontotoc County man has been convicted of molesting a six-year-old. Joseph Keith Robertson, 26, of Ada, was arrested back in November of 2005 after Department of Human Services Child Welfare found he had been sexually abusing a child.
After more than five hours of deliberations Wednesday, a jury found Robertson guilty on one count of child molestation of a minor child and one count of forcible sodomy.
Each of these charges carries a potential penalty of up to 20 years in prison.
Robertson is currently being held in the Pontotoc County Jail where he is awaiting a February 14 hearing.
