Sex Convictions Upheld

Eight convictions against a Nash County man originally sentenced to more than 300 years in prison for having sex with an eleven-year-old girl have been upheld by the State Supreme Court.

Prosecutors say Markeith Rodgers Lawrence engaged in repeated sexual acts with the girl over an 18-month period in 1999 and 2000. Lawrence was living with the girl's sister, whom he later married.
