On February 6, 2013, Judge Wilford Carter sentenced Lester Hugh Golden to twenty (20) years in prison for two counts of aggravated incest. Golden pled guilty to both charges, and Judge Carter sentenced him to 20 years on each count to run concurrent with each other. The sentence will also run concurrent with his current term of just over 17 years in federal prison for Child Pornography. Golden is not eligible for parole and is ordered to a lifetime sex offender registration.
The case was prosecuted for the Severe Child Abuse Division of the District Attorney’s Office by Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Guillory, and sentencing was handled by Assistant District Attorney Shunette Thomas-Jordan.
