Autauga County man sentenced for child sexual abuse conviction

AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) - An Autauga County man has been sentenced to life in prison for his conviction on sexual abuse charges.

According to court documents, Porter Belcher was sentenced to life on charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy.

Documents indicate the life sentence was due to Belcher having three previous convictions, making him a habitual offender.

According to the original indictment, the victim was a female under the age of 12.

Belcher was previously sentenced to 15 years in August for charges relating to possession of obscene material in Dallas County. In that case, he had nude pictures and video of a teenage girl on his cell phone that he obtained through a social media app.
