COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A Columbia man has been sentenced to life in prison for sexual abuse and exploitation of children.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that 40-year-old Charles DeCarr III was sentenced to life Friday for convictions on several charges, including first-degree statutory sodomy with a victim younger than 12 years old.

DeCarr pleaded guilty in November.

He was arrested in November 2012 after federal agents found images from Boone County on an Ohio suspect's cell phone.
