A 59-year-old man has been sentenced to two life terms in prison after a Greenville County jury convicted him on several charges of criminal sexual conduct involving two girls.
The Greenville News reported (http://bit.ly/n6WSQ6) that Marshall Dewitt McGaha was sentenced Wednesday on charges of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, a lewd act on a child and illegal conduct toward a child.
McGaha maintained his innocence in the two-day trial and told Circuit Judge Gary Hill he wants to appeal the conviction.
McGaha's attorney Tom Hoskinson said in court McGaha stayed was living in a Greenville home with the girls, their grandmother and their great-grandmother. Hoskinson said the girls did not reveal the abuse until their grandmother was trying to evict McGaha from the home.
