Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A man was sentenced to life without parole on Thursday for repeatedly sexually assaulting a young girl, the solicitor Walt Wilkins announced. 

The sentence came after Gary Reece Thompson Jr., 44, was convicted of first degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and dissemination of obscene material to a minor.

During the trial it was established that Thompson repeatedly sexually assaulted a young girl who was between the age of 6 and 9, the solicitors office said. 

Thompson received a life sentence, which the solicitors office said the state was seeking.

Thompson was previously convicted for the sexual assault of a young girl in the county in the early 1990s, the solicitors office said.
