Northern Va. man gets 21 years in child's sexual abuse case

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A northern Virginia man has been sentenced to 21 years in prison in a case that prosecutors say involves the repeated sexual abuse of a child.

Jose Quintanilla was sentenced Thursday in Alexandria Circuit Court. He was convicted of forcible sodomy, aggravated sexual battery, production of child pornography and similar charges.

Once the 44-year-old is released from prison, he'll be on supervised probation until his death.

Between 2011 and 2014, prosecutors say Quintanilla performed sex acts on a victim under the age of 13, against the victim's will. They say Quintanilla videotaped the assaults a number of times and saved the files, which police recovered.
