Jones County man get life in prison after pleading guilty to sexual battery.

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

A sixty-year-old year old Jones County man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after pleading guilty to charges of sexual battery and child exploitation.

Dale Grayson of Ellisville plead guilty on Thursday of molesting a child under the age of ten, as well as being in possession of child pornography.

Grayson told the court that he was sorry and hated all of this had to happen.

Grayson was arrested earlier this year after authorities received a complaint from the parents of the victim.

Grayson's computer was confiscated from his home and authorities say it contained pornographic images of underage children.

Jones County Prosecutor J Ronald Parrish said he's glad Grayson admitted his guilt.

The sentence for Grayson was life in prison plus additional years for the various charges to which he pleaded guilty.
