Judge denies new trial for former teacher’s aide convicted of sodomy
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A former Huntsville teacher’s aide will not get a new trial following his conviction on sodomy charges.
A Madison County judge issued that ruling Wednesday morning.
A jury convicted Michael Horton back in September. He had been accused of sexually abusing a child in his care.
Horton was sentenced to roughly 15 years in prison.
Judge Dennis O’Dell denied the motion for a new trial.
Horton’s attorney cited a lack of evidence among the reasons his client should get a new trial.
