A man will never leave prison after forcing two young girls to have sex with him.

Earnest Demetrus Bolton, 42, of Jacksonville, Florida, was sentenced on Wednesday, to five life terms after being convicted of five counts.

Bolton was found guilty of three counts of Sexual Battery, one count of Attempted Sexual Battery, and one count of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation. Two of the life sentences will run consecutively, while the rest will run concurrently.

Last year, officers learned of the sexual abuse that occurred between Bolton and a girl who is now 11 years old. The victim told officers that since she was 6 years old, the defendant touched her inappropriately and forced her to have sex with him on multiple occasions.

During the investigation, officers also learned that Bolton had sexually battered another child on multiple occasions. The victim, now 17 years old, disclosed similar accounts in which Bolton would force her to have sex with him. The abuse began when the victim was only 5 years old.
