Covington County Man Convicted on Sex Offender Charges

A Covington County jury has convicted a 67 year old man for committing several sex crimes against an 11 year old Andalusia boy.

In the two day trial, the jury found Kenneth Cender guilty of solicitation to commit sodomy, and enticing a child into a house or room for immoral purposes.  Cender will be sentenced March 12. Until then, he is being held without bond.

Because he has a prior criminal record, Cender could receive a sentence of life in prison.
