Jury finds Beaumont man guilty of sexually assaulting 3-month-old infant

BEAUMONT - A Jefferson County jury has found a Beaumont man guilty of sexually assaulting an infant.

Cedric Dwight Madison, Sr., 41, was found guilty Wednesday of aggravated sexual assault of a child by a jury in Jefferson County's Criminal District Court after less than two days of testimony.

The child's mother came home from a party and found him with the infant according to investigators.

In a police dashcam video played during testimony Tuesday morning in Jefferson County Criminal District Court  Madison can be heard admitting to the responding officer that he had molested a three-month-old child.

"I think what he told police on the video when he was arrested was very harmful for him,' said David Grove, the Defense Attorney. 

During testimony the responding police officer testified that Madison "seemed guilty" on the night he was arrested.

Nurses at Saint Elizabeth Hospital found no evidence of trauma or acute injuries on the three-month-old infant the night of the incident.

The sentencing phase will continue tomorrow morning at the Jefferson County Courthouse.
