July 17, 2007

COLUMBIA CTY, Ga.---A Columbia County man now knows how long he'll be behind bars for his crime.

Former Augusta gynecologist Jerry Jackson Lee was convicted of sexual battery on a nine-year-old girl. He was sentenced today to 20 years in prison, which is the maximum penalty for that crime.

Lee was found not guilty of child molestation.

Once Lee gets out of jail, he'll have to register as a sex offender.
