A 70 year old man pleaded guilty to the aggravated sexual battery of a child Monday in DeKalb County Criminal Court.
Homer L. Nunley, who was originally charged with rape of a child and aggravated sexual battery, entered the plea to the one charge under a negotiated settlement and received a 12 year sentence to serve. The range of punishment for this offense is 8 to 12 years.
Judge David Patterson presided.
Nunley must comply with all sex offender requirements and have no contact with the victim.
He was given jail credit from August 6th, 2008 to January 26th, 2009
Sheriff Patrick Ray says Nunley was arrested on a sealed indictment returned during the August term of the Grand Jury for rape of a child and aggravated sexual battery. Nunley was accused of raping a child and the aggravated sexual battery of a child under 11 years of age on July 6th, 2008. Sheriff Ray says Nunley was convicted in Florida on April 9th, 1991 on a charge of sexual battery of a child by an authority figure. Nunley is currently registered here in DeKalb County on the TBI’s sexual offender registry.
