LANIER COUNTY, Ga. (WCTV) -- The Lanier County Superior Court has sentenced a man to 10 years in prison for committing sexual acts against a child.

David Schweitzer, 50, was sentenced on Tuesday. Local officials say he was found guilty last week on two counts of sexual battery against a minor and two counts of child molestation.

Schweitzer was facing a maximum sentence of 50 years behind bars. The court says of his 10-year sentence, Schweitzer will only have to serve five years.
