NIAGARA COUNTY, N.Y. (WKBW) - A Niagara County fugitive was sentenced in court Friday morning.

47-year-old Paul Turley skipped town with his wife in late January while on trial for sexually abusing two young girls during the 1990's.

In his absence, a jury convicted him on two counts of Course Sexual Conduct Against a Child and one count of Sexual Abuse in the first degree.

He and his wife were found in a mobile home in Arizona by U.S. Marshals in February.

Turley was sentenced Friday morning in Niagara County Court and will serve 15-30 years behind bars.
