MEXICO, Mo. - A Mexico man was sentenced to 75 years in prison Monday after being convicted of sex crimes against a young girl in 2012.

34-year-old Andrew Thompson was convicted in April of statutory rape, three counts of statutory sodomy, child molestation, and two counts of sexual misconduct involving a child.

Audrain County Assistant Prosecutor Ashley Turner said in a news release, "Andrew Thompson had no remorse for what he put this young woman through when she was 12 years old. This brave, smart, and beautiful young woman had the courage to stand up and tell what happened to her."
