NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a New Jersey man to 25 years in prison for kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl.

Prosecutors say 60-year-old Pedro Rios of Newark recorded the attacks, which took place in the rear of a tractor-trailer cab.

The girl claimed Rios would periodically drive her to his truck in Union County, where they had sex.

Rios fled to California when he learned he was wanted, but he was captured by the U.S. Marshals Service.

He pleaded guilty in 2015.
