Jernigan Sentenced after Guilty Plea

A Winston County man pleaded guilty Monday to the sexual battery of a vulnerable adult.

60-year-old Carl Jernigan was extradited from Alaska in June on that charge that he sexually assaulted a vulnerable adult when he was in a position of trust or authority.

As part of a plea agreement, Jernigan was sentenced to eight years in prison. He must also pay a $500 fine.
