An Alabama jury took just over an hour Thursday to find a horseback riding instructor guilty of sexually assaulting former students.
Thomas ‘Tommy’ Tucker, of Robertsdale, faces 71-years in prison. His peers found him guilty of 8 felony counts of sexual assault involving minors under 16-years of age.
Tucker operated Tucker’s Horse Ranch in Baldwin County where he offered horse boarding and horseback riding lessons. The victims stayed weekends at the ranch for horse camp prior to his arrest in September 2013.
A judge will sentence Tucker on December 14.
