WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina man was sentenced to at least 33 years in prison for molesting two young girls.

The StarNews of Wilmington reports (https://bit.ly/2szhrv0 ) 28-year-old Marcus Jamal Dent pleaded guilty on Monday to several charges, including three counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. He was sentenced to 33 to 51.25 years in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Lance Oehrlein says Dent molested the daughters of his live-in girlfriend. He says the girlfriend was looking through Dent’s phone when she found videos of Dent molesting her 9-year-old daughter.

Oehrlein says Dent was arrested in March 2016 after confessing to police. In June 2016 additional charges were filed against him.
