A 43 year old Brownville man is going to prison for sexually abusing a child.
Timothy Ferry was sentenced Friday in Jefferson County Court to 12 years to life behind bars.
A jury found him guilty in January of predatory sexual assault against a child; first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, and first-degree sexual abuse.
The prosecution said Ferry sexually assaulted a female child for 10 years, starting when she was about 5 years old.
Ferry's defense lawyer said he felt his client was not guilty.
