CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A Conway man has been convicted of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl.

According to a press release from the Fifteenth Circuit Solicitor’s Office, an Horry County jury deliberated for about an hour Thursday before they convicted Leslie Davis of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

The victim, who is now 11, testified in the trial against Davis, who is already a registered sex offender.

He was convicted and sentenced in New York in 1986 for an unrelated rape of a child.

Davis will serve the next 30 years in prison following Thursday’s conviction.
