Posted: Updated:

A Jefferson County teen, convicted of sexually abusing two children at a daycare his mother worked at, has been sentenced to 23 years in prison.  Eric Lemont Higdon was sentenced Tuesday on two counts of sodomy.  He was convicted in February for sexually abusing children at Momma's Place Christian Academy in Clay. 

Investigators have said the children who accused Higdon of molesting them were between 3 and 5 years old.  Higdon did not work at the daycare, but visited on a regular basis.  His mother was fired from the daycare after the allegations rose.
