A Campbellsville man has been sentenced to serve a year in prison for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl.
Robert Elzie Followell, 39, of 3825 Raikes Hill Road appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Allan Bertram on Tuesday, Jan. 22 for sentencing.
In October 2007, Followell avoided facing a jury by pleading guilty to first-degree sex abuse. A first-degree persistent felony offender charge was dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
According to court records, Followell was accused of grabbing and attempting to kiss the girl.
