Man gets 8 years in child sex case
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) - A child molester was sentenced Friday on a plea to eight years in prison.

Santiago Hernandez was arrested in March on suspicion that he sexually abused two children and possessed child pornography.

Kern County court records show he entered no-contest pleas last month to three counts: two for lewd and lascivious acts and another for sodomy. Ten other felony counts were dismissed, and Hernandez avoided trial.
