A former Effingham County man has been sentenced to two life terms plus 20 years, stemming from his conviction for multiple counts of child molestation.

James Calvin Leggett was given two life sentences in Effingham County Superior Court on Tuesday. Leggett was convicted last month of 17 counts stemming from a series of child molestation charges.

Leggett was found guilty of two counts of rape, two counts of statutory rape, four counts of aggravated sodomy, seven counts of aggravated child molestation and one count of incest. He did not make a statement at his sentencing hearing Tuesday.
