LONG BEACH (CBS/AP) — A Wilmington man who raped three girls, including his 5-year-old niece, has been sentenced to 96 years to life in prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Carlos Aguirre Jr. was sentenced Tuesday in Long Beach after the judge called him a monster. He was convicted last month of a dozen charges, including rape, drug possession and possession of child pornography.

Prosecutors say Aguirre began sexually assaulting his niece when she was 5 years old and drugged and repeatedly raped two other girls who were 14 and 16 years old. Authorities say they also found child porn on his computer, including an 18-minute video of one victim being raped by Aguirre and a 12-year-old boy.

His defense lawyer argued that the teens had consensual sex.
