BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) — A Baldwin County rancher has been convicted of sexual assault.

WRKG TV reports (http://bit.ly/2ed5sP1) a jury in Bay Minette took just over one hour Thursday to find Tommy Tucker guilty on all eight counts of felony sexual assault involving minors under the age of 16.

Tucker was arrested in September 2013 after four girls came forward and told authorities Tucker had fondled them during an overnight stay at his horse camp.

Tucker will be sentenced on Dec. 14.

He faces up to 71 years in prison.
