ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A former University of Alaska Anchorage assistant professor has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for sexual abuse of a minor.

KTVA-television (https://bit.ly/15Gepci) reports 49-year-old Steven Pyle pleaded guilty last year to assaulting a 9-year-old child and was sentenced Friday.

Pyle was hired at UAA in 2006 and worked in the medical science laboratory program.

Pyle apologized in court to the child’s family before Anchorage Superior Court Judge Philip Volland imposed the sentence.
