SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A Santa Ana man who molested 10 neighborhood boys has been sentenced to 27 years to life in prison.

Twenty-six-year-old Edwin Echeverria was sentenced Friday on two dozen molestation charges. He pleaded guilty last month.

Authorities say that between 2010 and 2014, Echeverria lured children to his apartment, plying them with chips, soda and other snacks, and sexually assaulted them. The victims ranged from 11 to 17 years old but seven of them were under the age of 14.

Echeverria was arrested after a parent of one victim learned of the molestation and called police.
