COLUMBIA — A Columbia man has been sentenced to life in prison for sexual abuse and exploitation of children.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reported that 40-year-old Charles DeCarr III was sentenced to life Friday for convictions on several charges, including first-degree statutory sodomy with a victim younger than 12 years old.

DeCarr pleaded guilty in November.

He was arrested in November 2012 after federal agents found images from Boone County on an Ohio suspect's cellphone.
