Scranton, Lackawanna County - A man convicted of sexually assaulting a young girl for several years will go to prison.
Alix Benjamin was sentenced to between 13 to 26 years Tuesday afternoon in Lackawanna County court.
After two days of testimony, Benjamin was convicted on several sex crimes charges in September.
Benjamin was found guilty of assaulting a young girl over a three-year period. Prosecutors say the abuse started when the girl was just 11 years old.
Benjamin apologized in court Tuesday but the judge called his actions "shocking and intolerable."
