LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A Sulphur man was sentenced Friday in 14th Judicial District Court to 50 years with the Department of Corrections for several sex-related charges.

According to the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney's Office, 26-year-old Andrew Joseph Fusilier will serve 20 years for indecent behavior with a juvenile, 20 years for simple rape and 10 years for computer-aided solicitation.

The sentences are to run consecutive without benefit of probation, parole or suspension.

Judge Michael Canaday was the presiding judge in Friday's hearing.

Fusilier was arrested on numerous charges of aggravated sex offenses against children after a joint investigation by Sulphur authorities and the Louisiana State Police in 2010.

Fusilier reportedly worked out a plea deal with the state. He previously pleaded guilty to one count of computer aided solicitation of a juvenile in Florida and pleaded no contest to simple rape and indecent behavior with a juvenile. The offenses reportedly involve three different children.

Fusilier was represented by King Alexander, public defender.

Attorney Cynthia Guillory prosecuted the case.

KPLC-TV will have more on this later today.
