KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knoxville man accused of raping a child has plead guilty to the charges.

Christopher Howard, 46, entered his guilty plea last week on five counts of child rape.

Knoxville police arrested Howard earlier this year after learning of accusations that he raped a 12-year-old boy.

Police say the victim didn't live with Howard, but three other children between the ages of 7 and 12 were removed from his home.

Howard was sentenced to 125 years in prison and must serve a minimum of 25 years.
