JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Jacksonville man was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday for sexually abusing two children under the age of 12.

David Harold Blizzard, 60, faced mandatory life in prison for one count of sexual battery plus 30 years in prison for one count of lewd or lascivious molestation.

Blizzard was convicted of those charges in July. 

The two victims disclosed in February 2015 a history of sexual activity that occurred between them and Blizzard when they were under age 12. The investigation revealed Blizzard inappropriately touched them in 2001.

The sentences will run concurrently.
