Two little girls no longer have to fear being sexually abused by a relative; he'll be in jail a long time.

A judge sentenced 33-year-old Martin Arevallo Guerrero to 20 years behind bars.

He forced the girls to touch him and be touched sexually.

We're told they kept it quiet to prevent causing turmoil in the family.

Guerrero is from Mexico and left town for a while.

When he was supposed to return to Midland, prosecutors say they told their mom, fearing it would happen again.

Guerrero won't be eligible for parole for 10 years.
