NY man sentenced for molesting 2 girls in '90s


LOCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York man who fled the state before being convicted of sex abuse has been sentenced to 15 to 30 years in prison.

Local media outlets report that 47-year-old Paul Turley of Dunkirk was sentenced Friday in Niagara County Court, where his trial was underway in January when he left the courtroom and didn't return.

U.S. Marshals tracked him down, along with his wife, in Tucson, Ariz., in February. He and his wife, Diane, were found hiding out at a home of an acquaintance.

After taking off, Turley was found guilty of sexually abusing two young girls in North Tonawanda during the 1990s.

Diane Turley has been charged with hindering prosecution.
