A Midland man convicted of sexually abusing his stepdaughter and keeping her captive was sentenced this weekend and he won't be seeing the light of day any time soon.

46-year-old Telesforo Galan was sentenced to life in prison plus twenty years.

Galan was convicted of sexually abusing his step daughter on an almost daily basis from the time she was nine to 14 years old.

Galan also kept her locked up inside his home with a security camera in place to record her every move.

The child and her younger sister were kept out of school for about two years.

Galan won't be able to petition for parole for 30 years.
