ABILENE, Texas -

A 29-year-old Abilene man has accepted a plea agreement that calls for him to spend 22 years in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14.

Police say Steven Bennett, who agreed to the jail time, assaulted the victim multiple times over several months in late 2011.

Bennett was a Dyess Air Force Base crew chief when police searched his home and found evidence linking him to the crime in March 2013.
