A Killeen man was sentenced on Tuesday in the 27th Judicial District Court to probation after a 16-year-old girl told police that he touched her inappropriately in 2017.

Byron Phinney, 33, "was sentenced by Judge John Gauntt to 5 years of deferred adjudication probation" on the felony charge of indecency with a child by sexual contact, said Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza.
