DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WRCB) -- A North Alabama man accused in a pair of sexual assaults is going to prison.

Christopher Richey was arrested last year, when he was accused of rape.

A few months later, another woman came forward claiming that Richey had raped her when she was 16-years-old.

This week, Richey pleaded guilty in both cases. 

A judge sentenced him to 30 years in prison, but Richey will likely only serve three years, plus five on probation.
