Ala. Man Sentenced on Molestation Charges


By Alabama News Network

A man convicted of molesting and taking pornographic images of young children he babysat has been sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison.

Prosecutors say 55-year-old Brian James Murphy was sentenced to 262 months in prison Thursday on charges of child sex abuse and producing and distributing pornography.

Authorities say the man was arrested after his neighbor's children told police he molested them and recorded it on his cellphone.

Prosecutors say one of Murphy's relatives also told investigators he raped her for a decade and the man's ex-girlfriend told authorities her 12-year-old grandson also said Murphy molested him.
