BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

A Beaufort man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for molesting a girl in October 2011.

Jimmy Selsey pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor before his trial was to begin March 18.

The string of incidents occurred in October 2011. Selsey pleaded guilty to e fondling and having intercourse with a 10-year-old girl he was caring for at a home on Lafayette Street in Beaufort.

The girl told a family member that she had been abused by Selsey on several occasions, according to the Solicitor's Office for the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit. The family called police and took her to the hospital for an evaluation. She also disclosed the abuse during a forensic interview with Hope Haven.

Family members report the girl since been doing better in school than while and is once again a happy child.

By law the sentence requires Selsey to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
