GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 48-year-old Biloxi man has received a 50-year prison term for the sexual assault of a 9-year-old girl during an overnight camping trip in 2012.

Circuit Judge Michael Ward sentenced David Alan Ringer on Thursday after a Harrison County jury deliberated about two hours and found Ringer guilty on two counts of sexual battery.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1wMkWKx ) Ward suspended 10 years, leaving 40 to serve in prison plus five years of post-release supervision.

Because of the nature of the crime, Ringer must serve the 40 years and he will not be eligible for consideration for early release.

Ringer must register as a sex offender after his release from prison.
