COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — A Coeur d'Alene man will spend at least 25 years in prison for sexually abusing two children.

The Spokesman-Review reports that 32-year-old Justin Shawn Wheeler was sentenced Monday in Kootenai County District Court.

First District Judge Fred Gibler cited Wheeler's "ongoing predatory conduct" in handing down a sentence that could potentially keep him behind bars for the rest of his life.

Wheeler pleaded guilty last October to two counts of lewd and lascivious conduct and sexual battery of a minor under 16.
