Gardner convicted of aggravated sexual battery of a child
A New Jersey man arrested in August 2016 on charges of rape of a child, Thursday was convicted by a Cocke County Circuit Court jury of aggravated sexual battery of a child. Donald Gardner, 43, Millville, New Jersey was arrested on a warrant obtained by Newport Detective Jason Ramsey, stemming from an alleged April 2016 incident. Gardner was staying at a home on Myers Circle in Newport when he sexually assaulted a seven year-old female as she took a bath. Then the suspect reportedly told the girl to not tell her mother "or he would be mad". Bond for Gardner was initially set at $100,000. Circuit Court Judge James Gass will sentence the defendant at a later date.
