A Jackson man was convicted for crimes committed against children, ages 8 and 13.
Allen Bond, 38, was on trial Tuesday in Madison County Circuit Court, Division I, on charges of rape of a child and attempted sexual battery. The jury found him not guilty of rape of a child; however, he was found guilty of the lesser crime of aggravated sexual battery. The victim was an 8-year-old girl. He was found guilty as charged for attempted sexual battery on a 13-year-old girl.
He will be sentenced on April 15 in Circuit Court. He faces 12 to 20 years, with no parole, for aggravated sexual battery. He also faces a maximum sentence of 11 months and 29 days for attempted sexual battery.
Around 4:10 a.m. on May 18, 2012, Jackson police responded to a home.
Police were told about the allegation, and Bond was taken into custody.
The Tennessee Department of Children's Services assisted in the investigation.
Bond is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for possession of cocaine with intent to sell and/or deliver and theft over $1,000. Both crimes occurred in Madison County.
He also has a previous conviction for attempted drug trafficking in Ohio.
