A man who was accused of raping a 6-year-old girl has been sentenced to 70 years in prison.
Circuit Court Judge Bradley Zell sentenced Christopher George Hartford to 70 years in prison on two counts of first degree rape.
Officials said the Department of Social Services, contacted police, after a report was filed at the victim's school.
Documents state the incidents took place more than one time when the victim's mother was at work and the victim's younger brother at daycare.
During an interview with detectives, Hartford answered "Yes," to questions from officials asking if he had sexual intercourse with the six-year-old child.
