GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - A Millsboro man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually abusing a girl over a four-year period.
    
54-year-old James D. Ross was sentenced in Sussex County Superior Court last week. He had pleaded guilty to rape and continuous sexual abuse of a child.
    
Prosecutors say in 2013, the victim told a school counselor that she had been abused. An investigation by Delaware State Police found that the girl had been abused as a pre-teen for years.
