Teen Pleads Guilty To Molesting 4 Yr. Old

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) –  Last Thursday, a teen pled guilty to child molestation and was sentenced to eight years in prison.

Authorities say 16-year-old Stephen Sanders was arrested in September 2008 for molesting a 4-year-old girl.  He was 14-years-old at the time of the incident.

Investigators say the teen molested the little girl in the basement of his home. Authorities were alerted when she told her mother.

Sanders is being held at the youth detention center in Muscogee County because of his age. When he turns 17 he will be transferred to the state prison.
