JOLIET - Authorities say a northern Illinois man who has been convicted on predatory criminal sexual assault and child pornography charges has been sentenced to 108 years in prison.
The Will County State's Attorney's Office released a statement, announcing that Timothy Brandt, 38, was sentenced this week, three months after his conviction. The charges alleged that Brandt sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl, and that he filmed the abuse.
Prosecutors say Brandt began abusing the girl she was 4 years old. Prosecutors also say the abuse continued until Brandt's 2013 arrest.
