DOVER, Del. (AP) - A 35-year-old Dover man has been sentenced to life in prison for sexually assaulting a young girl.

The Delaware Department of Justice announced Eric Curry’s sentence Friday.

According to the department, Curry was caught in November 2015 when the sister of his victim witnessed the crime.

Curry was convicted at a bench trial. The department says he was sentenced as a habitual offender because of previous convictions for violent felonies.
