MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Cobb County prosecutors say a man convicted of sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Officials say 55-year-old Craig Alan Ellett of Tucker was sentenced Wednesday on charges of aggravated sodomy and aggravated child molestation.

District Attorney’s spokeswoman Kim Isaza says the now 6-year-old victim testified against Ellet in court and said the man abused her in a Smyrna apartment in February of 2013.

A Cobb County Superior Court judge ordered Ellet to serve a life term of probation after his release from prison.

Officials say Ellet also pleaded guilty to child molestation in California in 1996.
