Elmer Lamont Chavis was sentenced to three consecutive life terms.

Chavis was convicted in January of repeatedly raping a 12-year-old girl over a two-year period.

Circuit Judge Ed Jackson handed down the maximum sentence.

Prosecutors say that sentence was based in part on Chavis's extensive criminal history in the states of New York, New Jersey and Georgia.
