Simpson County Circuit Court finds a Simpson County man guilty of sodomy.
Billy Brooks reportedly committed the crime in June 2004. Police said the victim is a five-year-old girl also from Simpson County. The offense is considered a Class A felony because of the age of the girl.
The jury in the case is recommending a 20 year sentence. Brooks won't be sentenced until Dec. 11, 2006. Brooks was already a registered sex offender in Alabama.
