Forrest County man pleads guilty to molestation

A 44-year-old Forrest County man could face up to 240 years in prison after pleading guilty to molesting a child.

Ethan Morgan of the Carnes community pleaded guilty Thursday to eight counts of sexual battery with a girl under 14 years of age.

The multiple charges stem from incidents occurring between August of 2005 and June of 2007.

No date has been set for Morgan's sentencing.
