POTOSI — A Washington County jury has found a Blackwell man guilty of child molestation charges.
It took about two hours for jurors to find John Sittner, 50, guilty of statutory rape, statutory sodomy, and two counts of incest. The verdict came after a two-day trial Monday and Tuesday.
The jury recommended Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Pratte sentence Sittner to life terms on the sodomy and rape charges and four years plus a fine on the incest charges.
Sittner will be sentenced by the judge at a later date.
