ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany man is sentenced to 25 years in prison for sexual abusing a young girl for about six years.

55 year old Ronald Arline was found guilty of aggravated child molestation, rape, and child molestation Friday, following a two week trial in Dougherty Superior Court. The jury deliberated two and a half hours before finding him guilty of all counts.

Prosecutors say the victim was 13 when she reported the sexual abuse to school officials.

Arline was named a sexual offender, and will be on probation for life after he serves his prison sentence.
