MEMPHIS – Jan. 12, 2015 - A Millington man pleaded guilty Monday to sexually molesting three young girls during the summer of 2013 and was sentenced to 20 years in prison with no parole, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Jeffrey Henry, 46, entered pleas to three counts of aggravated sexual battery in a Criminal Court hearing before Judge John Campbell.
Under terms of the negotiated plea, the defendant also will be placed on the Sex Offender Registry for life as a violent offender and will be on Community Supervision for life.
The incidents occurred between June and September of 2013 at a residence in a Millington trailer park. The victims were ages 5, 6 and 7.
The case was handled by assistant district attorney Katie Ratton of the DA’s Special Victims Unit (SVU) which prosecutes cases of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse of child victims; rape and aggravated rape of adult victims, and abuse of elderly and vulnerable adults.
SVU reviews child-victim cases cooperatively with Shelby County’s multi-agency Child Protection Investigative Team.
