SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

A man will spend at least the next 12 years in prison after he pled guilty to a pair of sex crimes Wednesday.

Seventh Circuit Solcitor's Office spokesman Murray Glenn stated that Jimmy Rovell Haney, 45, of Enoree, pled guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct and dissemination of obscene material to a minor. Circuit Court Judge Mark Hayes sentenced Haney to 15 years in prison, but said that he must serve at least 12 year of the sentence before he is eligible for release.

According to Glenn, a guidance counselor at Woodruff Elementary School reported the criminal allegations to the Sheriff's Office on November 9, 2011. During a forensic examination at the Children's Advocacy Center, the victim described Haney's criminal acts in detail and told investigators that Haney showed her a video of a couple engaged in sexual intercourse.

"The victim's bravery is a good example to other children who have gone through something like this or are going through it," Assistant Solicitor Susan Reese said.

During an interview with investigators, Haney admitted to inappropriately touching the child, but he claimed to have no memory of the incidents since he was intoxicated. Deputies searched Haney's telephone and found evidence of the video he showed the child.
