MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Gary Dean Helms was sentenced Monday afternoon to 10 years in jail, but the judge split the sentence to serve 1046 days, which is the time he has already served.

Helms pleaded guilty to incest from a 2006 incident where Helms became upset with his brother and then had sex with his mother.

His mother at first had said she was raped and later said it was consensual.

Helms was ordered to serve five years supervised probation and register as a sex offender.
