NINETY SIX, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Ninety Six man was sentenced on Wednesday after pleading guilty to second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

The Solicitor's Office said in 2015, multiple victims under the age of 16 years old came forward to report being abused by 42-year-old Christopher Glenn Seymour. The incidents took place between 2012 and 2013.

After entering a guilty plea, Seymour was sentenced to 20 years in prison which is the maximum penalty for the charge.

“Predators like Christopher Seymour are the scourge of our society and we are pleased that he will be behind bars where he belongs for the foreseeable future,” said Solicitor David Stumbo. “It is my sincere prayer that this conviction and sentence, without having to go through testimony at trial, will help give these young ladies some closure and allow them to move forward with strength.”
