A picayune man will serve 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to six counts of sexual battery on three separate children.
According to District Attorney Joel Smith, investigators looked into 36 year old Joseph Rogers in 2016 when a 14 year old victim reported multiple incidents to her mother.
The mother asked her two younger daughters ages 9 and 11 who said Rogers abused them as well.
Hancock County investigators determined the abuse had been ongoing for around 3 years and he was also connected to sexual assaults in Forrest, Pearl River and Texas.
