JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man was convicted of capital sexual battery charges after touching a girl inappropriately.

Norman James Thompson, 52, was convicted Friday of capital sexual battery on a minor. He was sentenced to life in prison.

In 2012, police were notified of sexual activity involving a young child. The report says the child's mother Dalina Nicholas was so addicted to crack cocaine that she failed to supervise the victim properly. The victim said Thompson had touched her inappropriately.

Nicholas pleaded guilty to four counts of aggravated child neglect and will be sentenced next week. The state is recommending a sentence of no less than 25 years in prison for Nicholas.

yea that sucks! why did he get life when my sorry ass brother-in-law touched my baby neice and his sorry ass only got 15 years. My brother-in-law has a long rap sheet to. I think anyone touching a child should get death or atleast life no parolle. Why is that child being touched any better than my 5 yr old neice? That sucks.

Headline says "having sex" but story content says that he touched her inappropriately. Big difference.
