COLLINS, MS (WDAM) - A Covington County man was found guilty in a matter of seconds on a charge of simple assault, stemming from a Collins convenience store.

The case against L.B. McGrew was called in justice court Wednesday morning in Collins, but neither McGrew, nor his attorney, George Thomas Sullivan showed up. Because of it, a judge found him guilty.

McGrew was accused of inappropriately touching women at a Fast Trac convenience store. The case was continued once already and last week McGrew's attorney filed a motion for a jury trial, which had been denied once already.

Another alleged victim says many people knew what was happening for while.

"I just want justice to be served because I know I'm not the only one that he's done this to and something needs to be done about it," said Lakeya Anderson.

Sullivan, McGrew's attorney, did not return phone calls seeking comment about the verdict. McGrew has 30 days to appeal the conviction which carries up to a $500 fine and up to 6 months in jail.
