Man convicted on sex charges
A Glynn County jury has convicted a 34-year-old man of molesting a juvenile nearly a year ago.

John Thomas Schoolcraft was convicted late Friday in Glynn County Superior Court on eight counts of a 17-count indictment that alleged he had sex with a girl under 16 multiple times in November 2011.

Sentencing in the case will be at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

Schoolcraft was convicted of two counts of child molestation, two counts of statutory rape, two counts of aggravated child molestation and two counts of sexual battery against a child for allegedly having sex with, as well as conducting multiple sex acts on, a minor female on three different days in November 2011.

Jurors found Schoolcraft not guilty of six other similar charges, which had allegedly occurred on several other days. Glynn County Superior Court Judge Roger Lane moved for a directed verdict in three of the allegations, saying no evidence was presented that could warrant a conviction on those charges.

The two-day trial began Thursday and was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Katie Udy and Glynn County Police Investigator Marc Neu. Attorney Robert Crowe represented Schoolcraft.

Schoolcraft was indicted on the charges on March 22. All 17 charges were true bills.
