A Saline County resident will not see the end of his sentence.
Ronald Yarber was sentenced to more than 1,600 years in prison Thursday.
Following a jury trial last July, Yarber was found guilty on hundreds of counts of predatory and criminal sexual assault.
Convictions arose from his sexual abuse of a child case that took the course of more than five years.
Yarber has more than 250 individual accounts, and Illinois state law says each account must be served consecutively.
