Ex-detention officer convicted of sodomy

Ex-detention officer convicted of sodomy

MOBILE -- A jury Wednesday convicted a former juvenile detention center officer of sodomy involving boys at the Strickland Youth Center in Mobile.

The Mobile County jury deliberated for about two hours before returning a guilty verdict for Adric Lashaun Bush, 27, who maintained his innocence. He could be sentenced to 10 years to life in prison in May.

Two boys, 12 and 14, accused Bush of sodomizing them in the bedroom of his home.

In tearful testimony Tuesday, Bush called his accusers liars.

Bush was on trial in the case of the 14-year-old's accusations, but both boys swore Monday that he took them to his home in late 2003 and attacked them sexually.

Official charges involving the older boy include enticing a child for immoral purposes, furnishing alcohol to a minor and first-degree sodomy
