MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Macon man will serve 20 years in prison for admitting to having sex with a 12-year-old girl.

34-year-old Taurean Pitts was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to child molestation and statutory rape.

Pitts engaged in sex acts with the child, including intercourse, back in January 2017. Authorities were notified in March of that year.

During an interview, Pitts told investigators that he had sex with the girl but couldn’t remember her name.

“What Mr. Pitts did was despicable. It’s a safe bet that Mr. Pitts will remember this young girl’s name as he spends his next 20 years behind bars,” says District Attorney, David Cooke.

Pitts was sentenced to a total of 30 years.
