A Tucson man was sentenced to 135 years for sexually abusing an underage family member.

Eric Alvarez, who was convicted in July, was sentenced to serve three 35-to-life and four 17-year sentences on charges including sexual abuse of a minor, sexual conduct of a minor and sexual exploitation of a minor under 15.

The victim was a family member whom Alvarez abused over a period of seven years. He took pictures of the encounters, and authorities discovered one of them on his phone's SD card.

The sentencing was Monday in Pima County Superior Court.
