An Upshur County jury convicted a Gladewater man Tuesday of two counts of Indecency with a Child.

According to Upshur County District Attorney Billy Byrd, 52-year-old John Anthony Adams was sentenced to the maximum 20 years in prison for each count.

Adams molested his 5-year-old niece in November 2011.

Information presented in court revealed that during nap time, Adams reached under the girls shirt and pants and began touching her. The girl told her mother upon being picked up. The mother reported the crime and an investigation was opened.

The investigation revealed Adams was wanted out of Kentucky for Bigamy and Failure to Appear Charges.
