MURPHYSBORO (AP) — A southern Illinois man has been ordered to spend a decade in prison for his conviction of sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl a year ago.

A Jackson County judge also sentenced 44-year-old Galon Mack of Carbondale on Friday to two years of post-prison supervised release. Mack also must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Jurors convicted him in January of a felony charge of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Authorities say the abuse happened in April of last year.
