KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) - A Jackson County jury on Friday convicted Eric McMillon of multiple charges in connection with sexual assaults involving a minor child, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced Saturday.

44-year-old Eric McMillon was convicted of first-degree statutory rape for a victim under the age of 12 and first-degree statutory sodomy for a victim under the age of 12.
