Updated with a clarification about evidence the prosecution planned to introduce in court, but never presented.

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A jury on Thursday returned a guilty verdict against a man charged with sexual offenses against a child.

The jury convicted Cody Ryan Bush, 26, of Mobile, on charges of first-degree rape and dissemination of child pornography. He faces an automatic sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole.

Prosecutors presented evidence that Bush raped a child under the age of 7 in 2020.

During the trial, prosecutors also moved to introduce evidence purporting to show Bush molested a girl several years ago when she was between 7 and 9 years old and allegedly obtained from a search of Bush’s home in 2019 pornographic videos of that victim, according to court records. However, that evidence was not ultimately presented.
