A Greenville County jury found a man guilty of sexually molesting a young girl and was sentenced to life without parole on Tuesday.

Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins said Frederick Chappell, 44, was convicted on charges of lewd act on a minor and first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Prosecutors presented evidence in trial which established that Chappell molested the girl between 2008 and 2010, who was between 6 and 7 years of age at the time.

In 1994, Chappell was convicted of criminal sexual conduct with a minor in Pickens County and sentenced to 20 years in prison, but was released from the department of corrections on Dec. 30, 2005.

Wilkins said Chappell was also convicted on five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor for possession of child pornography in March 2012. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison on those charges.
