TEVIN CARROLL CONVICTED OF 3 COUNTS OF AGGRAVATED CHILD MOLESTATION

Tevin Terome Carroll was sentenced this morning in Superior Court of Houston County to 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole, followed by LIFE on probation, on 3 counts of Aggravated Child Molestation. He will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, and a special condition of his probation will be that he may have no contact with the victims. He will also be required to compensate them for expenses of counseling necessary as a result of these offenses, up to $5,000.00

 

Carroll was convicted by a Houston County jury last Friday (April 11, 2014) after a 3 day trial. The jury deliberated for 2½ hours before returning a guilty verdict on all three counts of the indictment.

 

 

COMMENTS FROM ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY MARK W. ANTHONY: The graphic nature of the abuse and the fact that it had been occurring over a long period of time, coupled with the young age of the children, made this case especially heart wrenching. I am grateful that the jury was able to determine what had been taking place, and that these children are finally safe from this predator.

 

COMMENTS FROM DISTRICT ATTORNEY GEORGE HARTWIG: The Houston District Attorney's office places the highest priority on protecting the children in our community. We will aggressively prosecute cases where the evidence points to sexual abuse of minors, and offenders need to be on notice that the consequences to convictions of this type will be severe.

 

Assistant District Attorney Mark W. Anthony served as lead prosecutor on behalf of the State. Mr. King was represented by Nick White, Public Defender. Questions about the case may be referred to Mr. Anthony at (478) 218-4810.

SHEILA HENDERSON SENTENCED IN THE DEATH OF ANDREW CALLOWAY

SHEILA HENDERSON SENTENCED IN THE DEATH OF ANDREW CALLOWAY

This morning, Judge George Nunn sentenced Sheila Henderson to 10 years in the death of Andrew
Calloway. Ms. Henderson entered a plea of guilty without recommendation to the charges of
Involuntary Manslaughter and Cruelty to Children. After a lengthy sentencing hearing, Judge
Nunn sentenced her to 10 years of which she must serve the first 2 in the Houston County Jail.
Ms. Henderson was taken into custody immediately. As part of her sentence, Ms. Henderson is
forbidden to run any more day care facilities. During the sentencing hearing witnesses spoke on
behalf of Ms. Henderson, who had never had any problems with the law before. The judge also
heard from the parents of Andrew, Brittany and Andrew Calloway.
In July 2011, Ms. Henderson was running an in-home day care center. Ms. Henderson and
another family member took the children to church and then out to eat. After returning home, Ms.
Henderson went inside with another child and presumed that someone had brought in Andrew.
Andrew had fallen asleep in the car and did not get out. Ms. Henderson believed that he was
napping on the floor but did not verify that it was him. In fact, Andrew remained in the hot car for
over an hour. The temperature that afternoon was in the mid 90s. Andrew suffered heat stroke and
died as a result. He was three years old.

QUOTE FROM ERIKKA B. WILLIAMS CHIEF ADA: We are extremely pleased with the Judge's
sentence. We believe that justice has been served for little Andrew. This was a tragic incident but
was avoidable had Ms. Henderson taken certain precautions in her role as a day care provider.
Nothing that we did today could bring back Andrew but this guilty plea and sentence are a step
towards healing for these grieving parents.

Ms. Henderson was represented by Greg Bell.

TERRANCE KING SENTENCED TO 30 YEARS FOR STATUTORY RAPE Terrance Lamont King (34) of Eastman, Georgia was convicted by a jury yesterday (December 12, 2013) of one count of Statutory Rape, one count of Aggravated Child Molestation, and one count of Entici

TERRANCE KING SENTENCED TO 30 YEARS FOR STATUTORY RAPE

 

Terrance Lamont King (34) of Eastman, Georgia was convicted by a jury yesterday (December 12, 2013) of one count of Statutory Rape, one count of Aggravated Child Molestation, and one count of Enticing a Child for Indecent Purposes in the Superior Court of Houston County, the Honorable Edward D. Lukemire presiding. He was sentenced this morning by Judge Lukemire to 30 years in prison, followed by probation for life. He will be required to register as a sex offender, and upon his release from prison, he will be banished from Houston County as well as all contiguous counties.

 

King was the pastor at a small church in nearby Hawkinsville, Georgia from 2010 until January of 2013. The victim and her family were lifelong members of the church community. In November of 2012, when the victim was age 15, King picked her up in his vehicle before school one morning, drove her to a hotel in Perry, Georgia, where he engaged in sexual intercourse with her, as well as an act of oral sex. The victim disclosed this to her mother several weeks later after an inappropriate Facebook chat between the two was discovered.

 

COMMENTS FROM ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY MARK W. ANTHONY: What makes this case especially egregious is the fact that the defendant was the victim’s pastor, someone that she and her whole family looked up to, trusted, and loved. He betrayed them and the entire church community by using his position to seduce this young woman, making her believe that they were in a dating relationship, and then exploiting her innocence and infatuation for his own lurid purposes. Given the abuse of his position of authority and status as a role model, we consider the sentence fair and just.

 

COMMENTS FROM DISTRICT ATTORNEY GEORGE HARTWIG: The defendant in this case brought the victim into Perry from another community altogether, and consummated his manipulation of her here. The DA’s office will not tolerate this kind of abuse of a minor in Houston County.

 

Assistant District Attorney Mark W. Anthony acted as lead prosecutor for the case on behalf of the State. Mr. King was represented by Nick White, Circuit Public Defender. Questions about the case may be referred to Mr. Anthony at (478) 218-4810.
