A Knoxville man has been sentenced to 125 years behind bars for child rape.
According to court documents, 46-year-old Christopher Howard entered guilty pleas to five counts of child rape and was sentenced last week.
Knoxville Police began investigating Howard in March after they were notified of an incident involving the rape of a 12-year-old boy.
That victim did not live with the suspect, but three male juveniles between the ages of 7 and 12 were removed from the suspect's home at the time the investigation began.
Court documents show five different victims were involved.
Howard must serve a minimum of 25 years.
