A man convicted of sexually abusing two young girls is sentenced to 50 years in prison.
The case started in December 2008 when one of the girls wrote a letter to Santa at school. In that letter, she asked Santa to stop the abuse to her and her sister. A jury found Andres Enrique Cantu guilty of the abuse in December 2009 and on Monday the sentencing phase began. The jury came to a decision and sentenced Cantu to two 50 year prison terms that will run concurrently.
