A convicted pedophile from Colona, Ill. will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Justin Bealer, 28, was sentenced to 14 consecutive life sentences in Henry County Court Thursday for molesting children. He was convicted of 14 counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

Over the years, he was accused of sexually abusing several children. The youngest victim was 4-years-old.

According to KWQC archives, he faced 27 counts of criminal sexual abuse and assault in 2010. Bealer was charged again in 2012.

In court, the judge said Bealer is clearly a pedophile. The Henry County prosecutor praised the two young girls who came forward to testify against Bealer. He added they undoubtedly saved other girls from being assaulted.
