WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) - A 120-year prison sentenced has been handed a Chicago man convicted of kidnapping and recording himself sexually assaulting a 3-year-old Mundelein girl in 2013.

Lake County Circuit Judge Mark Levitt sentenced Jose Reyes to four consecutive 30-year prison terms for aggravated kidnapping, predatory criminal sexual assault, and production of child pornography. Levitt convicted Reyes in November after a bench trial.

Before sentencing, the 32-year-old Reyes asked for mercy, saying he “found God.” However, Levitt told Reyes the depths of his depravity “are unmatchable.”

Authorities said Reyes grabbed the girl near the apartment complex where she lived. Video played at the trial shows Reyes molesting the girl in his car before dropping her off about 30 minutes later in a nearby parking lot.

Police arrested Reyes four days later after identifying his car through surveillance video.
