CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- A Thomasboro man is sentenced to life in prison. 38-year old Lyn Niemann was convicted of sexually molesting three boys.

Two of them were the children of his fiancee while the third was a close family friend. Niemann was found guilty on eight counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

Sentencing is set for May 16, but because there are at least two victims, the defendant must be sentenced to natural life without the possibility of parole.
