Dantae Stukes (Greenville Co. Detention Center)
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A Greenville man was sentenced to 15 years in prison after being convicted of having sex with a 14-year-old girl he was babysitting.
Prosecutors said 31-year-old Dantae Stukes was found guilty of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Evidence at the trial showed that between Jan. 5, 2009, and May 31, 2009, Stukes was taking care of the girl while her parents were out of town for work, prosecutors said. They said during that time Stukes sexually assaulted the girl.
Prosecutors said that when Stukes was confronted about the crime, he used the excuse of educating the girl about sex.
Stukes must serve 85 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
