EDNA (AP) - An Arizona man has been sentenced to 52 life prison terms for sexual abuse of three girls in the 1980s in Texas.

The Victoria Advocate reported Friday that 59-year-old Rickie Moore of Phoenix must serve the terms concurrently.

Jackson County District Attorney Bobby Bell says the abuse happened in 1988 and 1989. Indictments were returned in 1990 and in June. Moore was arrested last year in Arizona.

A jury in Edna, about 90 miles southwest of Houston, on Aug. 17 convicted Moore of 52 counts including aggravated sexual assault of a child, indecency with a child by sexual contact and sexual assault of a child. He received life in prison on each count.

An attorney for Moore declined comment.
