Ex-Marine sentenced to over 121 years in prison in sexual exploitation case

Donald Linville was found guilty on 12 counts of sexual exploitation in Phoenix.

PHOENIX (AP) - A former Marine convicted in Phoenix of filming himself having sex with minors and women who didn't know they were being recorded has been sentenced to more than 121 years in prison.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say 25-year-old Donald Linville was sentenced Friday.

A jury two months ago found Linville guilty of 12 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of unlawful view/tape/record.

Linville was arrested in the case in 2012 and again in 2013.

Phoenix police say Linville hid a video camera on his neighbor's balcony and his computers were seized.

Detectives who analyzed them found several videos of Linville having sex with various females.

Three of the victims say they didn't know they were being recorded and one victim was 15 years old.
