HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

On Friday morning, Cecil Salyers was sentenced to 40 years in prison for sex crimes against children.

Cheers erupted from the courtroom when the sentence was read.

The 52-year-old was charged with six counts of first degree sexual abuse and several other charges.

The first Cecil Salyers trial ended up in a mistrial in July.

The court cited problems with evidence retrieval and turn over as grounds for the mistrial.

We'll hear from a parent of a victim tonight on 14 News at 4pm.
