A 27-year-old Putnam County man was convicted Wednesday of molesting an 11-year-old girl in December 2011.

Steven Baker was found guilty after a jury deliberated for less than an hour.

He was then sentenced to life in prison.

The victim testified at trial that she was watching movies with family and friends when she awoke to Baker molesting her.
