GENEVA, Ill. (AP) — A suburban Chicago man has been sentenced to 181 years in prison for child sexual abuse and assault.

Prosecutors say Kane County Judge Donald M. Tegeler Jr. on Friday sentenced 51-year-old Noel F. Buhay of Sugar Grove. Prosecutors called it “one of the longest sentences in Kane County in recent memory.”
