Clifford Merchant was given a 51-year sentence with eight years suspended Friday after he pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a minor and child pornography charges. He has been ordered to serve at least 23 years behind bars before he’s eligible for parole.

Authorities began investigating the 69-year-old Merchant in 2014, when a 12-year-old girl reported that he had touched her inappropriately. Investigators eventually identified three other victims, all under age 13.
