Sixteen- year- old Demario Mangum will spend 5 years in prison for the sexual battery of a two-year old.
He was sentenced to 15 years but 10 of those are suspended.
The judge sentenced Mangum to 15 years in prison with 10 years suspended after his August conviction.
Prosecutors say he committed the crime against a two-year-old that he was babysitting last August.
The teen must register as a sex offender.
During closing testimonies before the sentencing Mangum's mother proclaimed her son's innocence, however, the victim's mother says his sentence was not tough enough.
