FRESNO, Calif. (AP) – A 41-year-old Fresno man has been sentenced to 1,503 years in prison for raping his teenage daughter over a four-year period.

The Fresno Bee reports the man was sentenced Friday to the longest-known prison sentence in Fresno Superior Court history.

The Associated Press is not naming the man to avoid identifying his daughter. The AP does not name sexual abuse victims.

A jury in September found him guilty of 186 felony counts of sexual assault, including dozens of counts of rape of a minor.

Prosecutors say the victim was raped two to three times a week from May 2009 to May 2013, when the girl got the courage to leave.

Judge Edward Sarkisian Jr. noted that Lopez had never shown remorse and has blamed his daughter for his predicament.
