A 37-year-old Beaumont man Monday was sentenced to 10 years in prison after accepting a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Patrick Joel Tyler originally faced a charge of continued sexual abuse against a child which carried a mandatory 25-year to life prison term. However Judge John Stevens accepted his plea on a lesser charge of aggravated sexual assault for the sexual assault of two children.

In addition to the 10-year sentence, Tyler must also register as a sex offender.
