OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A man is going to prison after his second conviction for child sex abuse landed him a 115-year sentence.

The Standard-Examiner reports (http://bit.ly/2hPWE34) 34-year-old Richard Drew Rhodes was convicted by a jury in November and received five back-to-back prison terms this month.

Court records say a boy under the age of 12 was abused by Rhodes in 2013.

The boy told investigators the abuse occurred more often than he could count.

Rhodes took a plea deal in 2003 for the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old boy.

He received a five-year prison sentence in May 2006 for a probation violation and was released in 2010.
