Randolph County Man Found Guilty of Sex Abuse Charges Granted New Trial

Posted: Updated:
A Randolph County man convicted of sexual abuse charges will get a new trial.

A jury had found Derek Shifflett guilty on 27 counts each of first degree sexual assault, incest, and sexual abuse by a parent, guardian or custodian in February 2014.

The Randolph County Sheriff's Department accused Shifflett of sexually abusing a young girl between 2011 and 2012.

Prosecuting Attorney Michael Parker said the judge granted a new trial because of a juror's error answered on a questionnaire.

Shifflett's trial is now scheduled for November 2014.
