Following three hours of deliberation Friday, jurors returned to the courtroom where they found Eric Absher guilty on five counts, and recommended he serve a total of 200 years in prison. Absher's trial started Thursday. During his trial, a mother testified she walked in on Absher molesting her children who were under the age of 12 in June 2015.
