Murnice Felton Chandler - Child Molester

A Sanford man who pleaded guilty to molesting his former girlfriend's daughter will spend ten years in prison and wear a GPS monitor for the rest of his life.

Murnice Felton Chandler, 44, of 111 Elliott Road, Sanford, pleaded guilty to 21 counts of indecent liberties with a child. Judge Allen Baddour sentenced him to 10 years in prison and ordered him to wear a Global Positioning System monitor for the rest of his life, according to assistant district attorney Kayley Taber.

The victim, who was molested at ages 8, 9 and 10, is now 20. She told prosecutors she had seen Chandler violently abuse her mother and was afraid to report the sexual abuse until she turned 18, which was two years ago.

Chandler has been in custody since August 2006 under a $575,000 bond.
