MARTINSVILLE (WISH) - A former sheriff's deputy from Morgan County was sentenced Thursday for child molesting.

William Hinesley III, a former sheriff's deputy, will now spend the next 25 years in prison.

The case started just more than three years ago when 43-year-old Hinesley was accused of having sex with his then 13-year-old foster daughter. He was convicted this past December.

Police documents state Hinesley had sex with the girl in his home. His own son turned him in the next day.

The victim became the key to his conviction, testifying against him during trial.
