BUFFALO, NY-A man convicted of sexually abusing a child is heading to prison for for at least the next 21 years.

Virgil Brown, 51, was sentenced Monday morning before Erie County Court judge Kenneth Case.

A jury took just 15 minutes to convict him last month of predatory sexual assault against a child. Back in September, 2012, he lured a nine-year-old boy into an abandoned house on Howard Street and attacked him.

At the time of the crime, Brown was already a registered as a sex offender in the state of Washington.
