A Cedartown man was sentenced in Polk County Superior Court on aggravated sodomy, sodomy and child molestation charges.
Christopher Michael Cox, 36, was sentenced in January to a life sentence with a minimum 25 years to serve for two counts sodomy and two counts child molestation against two victims; age 7 and 8-year-old.
According to District Attorney Jack Browning, "Under current state law, Cox will not be eligible for parole; he will spend twenty five years behind bars. He will then spend the reminder of his life on probation and will be required to register as a sex offender."
Andrew Garland, who serves as Browning's Assistant District Attorney, won the conviction against Cox.
District Attorney Jack Browning praised Garland's successful prosecution of the Cox case stating; "Andrew Garland and all the prosecutors in this office share my commitment to winning tough sentences especially in child molestation case, and I want anyone who would harm a Polk County child to know that my office takes crimes against children very seriously."
Cox was given credit for time served on misdemeanor magistrate court charges.
Cox was arrested on Aug. 8, 2011 by Polk County Sheriff's deputies on warrants charging him with sodomy, aggravated sodomy, child molestation and aggravated child molestation.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Thursday, August 04, 2011.
Cox is currently in custody at the Polk County jail awaiting transfer to a state prison. No information is available regarding which prison facility Cox will be calling home.
