A hearing has been set for August 3, 2018, at 9 a.m. at the Union County Courthouse.

Carr faces between 12 and 120 years in prison.

After the verdict, State's Attorney Edmonds said, "This child predator was convicted only because the survivor of this horrible crime had the strength and courage to come forward. I hope that today's verdict brings her and her family some peace as they continue the healing process."
