DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A southeast Alabama man convicted of raping a teenage girl during a burglary has been given four life prison sentences.

The Dothan Eagle reported Tuesday (https://bit.ly/1SLSNfp) that 50-year-old Cleveland Thomas Jr. was sentenced after pleading guilty to burglary, kidnapping, rape, sodomy, sexual abuse and assault.

Authorities have said the attack happened in February 2014 and the 14-year-old victim identified Thomas as the suspect. Assistant District Attorney Banks Smith has said Thomas was linked to the attack through DNA evidence.
