A Florida judge sentenced a man convicted in the horrific child abuse of a 3-year-old boy and sharing images of the rape to three consecutive life sentences.

Circuit Judge John Miller handed 22-year-old Charles Hoyt McConnell III, three consecutive life terms and tacked on an additional 495 years in prison.

McConnell was convicted during a one-day trial on Tuesday of 36 counts of child sex-related charges, KRON4 reported.

Prosecutors said McConnell photographed and filmed the child abuse of the toddler which occurred over a two-month period in 2016.

His wife discovered the child porn on McConnel’s phone and contacted authorities.

The woman took the stand against her husband, telling jurors she recognized the victim and her husband in screenshots and photos.

Two other men have been convicted and sentenced in the case for communicating with McConnell about the child porn videos and photos.
