KOSCIUSKO, Miss. (AP) — A Winona man has been sentenced to serve 30 years in prison for child sex charges in three counties.

Prosecutors say 39-year-old Christopher Lamar Miller pleaded guilty in Attala County Circuit Court this week to multiple charges in Webster, Montgomery and Carroll counties.

The charges included sexual battery, child fondling and other crimes.

Prosecutors say they bundled the charges from all three counties into one plea agreement. Miller must serve the sentence day for day.

The case came to light in July when one of the victims came forward.

Authorities say Miller met his victims through volunteer work. He was arrested July 9.
