PHOENIX (AP) - A Mesa man accused of sexually abusing a 2-year-old girl he was baby-sitting has been sentenced to life in prison.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say 52-year-old Daniel Divit was sentenced Wednesday and won’t be eligible for parole for 35 years.

Last month, Davit pleaded no contest to two charges of sexual conduct with a minor and attempted molestation of a child.

He was accused of committing the sexual offenses in July and August of 2015 and also taking explicit video of the toddler.

Court records show the girl’s mother found several videos on Divit’s cellphone and notified authorities.
