Two to 10 years in prison is what a Monongalia County man is facing for apparently sexually assaulting and abusing a number of children who lived in his home.

John Kelch was sentenced Monday morning in a Mon County courtroom.

Kelch entered an Alford plea earlier this year to those charges, meaning he didn't admit to the crimes, but agreed there's enough evidence to convict him.
