OCALA, Fla. -

A man convicted of sexually molesting a 4-year-old Ocala girl has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports a jury took less than an hour Thursday to find 42-year-old Guies U. Johnson guilty on multiple counts including possession of child pornography and sexual battery.

The child's mother testified that she met Johnson on an online dating website after separating from her husband in 2011. He eventually moved in with her.

The mother testified she found a flash drive and micro SD card in September, which included a video of Johnson molesting her daughter, who is now 5. She identified him on the video by his voice and body parts since his face wasn't shown.

Defense attorneys argued it wasn't Johnson on the video.
