(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested, charged and convicted of child rape after he held his female mentally disabled relative as a sex slave for many years, prosecutors in California said.

52-year-old Raul Ochoa, pleaded guilty as a part of a plea deal on Wednesday, and will serve 22 years behind bars.

The girl was 13 when she was first abused by Ochoa. She managed to escape in 2012, with the help of a relative.

Ochoa called the victim from jail after being arrested in attempt to try to scare her from cooperating with the police. He also got his mother to help him intimidate the victim.

Ochoa is now under a restraining order that prevents him from contacting the victim and three of her relatives.

The girl was subjected to repeated sexual and physical abuse between 1999 and 2012.
