HOLTON, Kan. (AP) -- A northeastern Kansas man has been sentenced to life in prison for sexually abusing his 4-year-old daughter.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Jackson County Attorney Shawna Miller announced in a news release Wednesday that the man was sentenced late last week.

Miller says the 34-year-old man was on probation after being convicted of crimes against the girl when he confessed to sexual crimes that had not been discovered.

He was charged with aggravated criminal sodomy after sheriff's detectives corroborated his confession. He pleaded no contest in September.

The man will not be eligible for parole for 25 years and will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

The Associated Press is not naming the man to protect the identity of his daughter.
