URBANA, Ill. (AP) - A Champaign County judge has ordered a 120-year prison sentence for a convicted sex offender who repeatedly molested his girlfriend’s 7-year-old daughter for more than a year.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1TqcNXO ) reports that 30-year-old Christopher Wilkins in early April was found guilty of three counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

He was sentenced Wednesday to 40 years each on the assault convictions and 20 years on the abuse conviction. The 40-year sentences will be served consecutively and the 29-year sentence will be served at the same time as the others.

The judge said the child has post-traumatic stress disorder, undergoes counseling, takes medication and remains fearful of Wilkin’s threats to hurt her if she told anyone about the abuse.
