DOVER, Del. – The Delaware Department of Justice says a child predator has been sentenced to more than two decades in prison.

Attorney General Beau Biden said Douglas Watson, 44, of Hartly, received a 24-year sentence in Kent County Superior Court on Monday.

Watson was arrested in May and pleaded guilty on Oct. 29 to one count of second-degree rape and two counts of dealing in child pornography, according to DOJ officials.

Kent County Superior Court Judge William Witham sentenced Watson to 20 years on the second-degree rape charge and two years each on the child pornography charges, officials said.
