FAIRBANKS - A Fairbanks man who admitted seven years of sexual abuse pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a minor and sexual assault.
When he is sentenced in July, 39-year-old Joseph Turney will face at least a 20-year prison sentence.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that Monday's pleas consolidate 20 charges. The man also was accused of fathering a child during the abuse.
Turney had no criminal history before his January 2009 arrest. He worked as a school bus driver and was suspended after his arrest. The bus company says it had received no complaints about him.
