MCDONOUGH, GA – A Henry County man will spend the rest of his life in prison after he sexually abused a teenager at a family birthday party.
A Henry County jury returned a guilty verdict Monday against Anthony Lamar McCaskill Jr., 41, on two counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of child molestation.
Following the verdict, Superior Court Judge Danielle Roberts sentenced McCaskill to two life sentences to be served consecutive to each other followed by 19 years in prison. He also received one year on probation following his prison sentence and must register as a sex offender for life. He is not entitled to parole.
The jury found McCaskill drugged a 15-year-old family member in August 2020. The child went to lay down in a bedroom and that is when the Defendant came into the room and committed multiple sex acts on the child against her will.
During the trial, jurors heard from the crime lab scientists about the drugs and male DNA found in the child. Jurors also heard from the victim child, as well as law enforcement, a nurse and other professionals who assisted in the case.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Caitlin McGillicuddy and John Murray, and the Crimes Against Children unit.
