COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A Columbus man convicted of child molestation is fighting for a new trial.

Sixty-eight-year-old Wilbur Mayo was sentenced to 30 years in prison plus 10 ten years probation back in 2001.

Now, his lawyer is asking for a new trial, saying witnesses lied.

Until a Superior Court Judge makes a decision, Mayo is out of jail on bond under house arrest.
