WACO (February 18, 2014) A Waco man was sentenced to state prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to four counts in a child sexual abuse case.

State District Judge Ralph Strother sentenced Antonio Lynn Steele, 20, to four 8-year terms to be served concurrently, three for indecency with a child and one for sexual assault of a child.

Members of the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force arrested Steele on April 26, 2013 on a warrant stemming from a January 2012 incident that happened at a Waco home, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

The task force arrested Steele at a residence in the 3200 block of Morrow Avenue.

The victim was a girl younger than 15 who had run away from home, Swanton said.

She was assaulted by a man she met over the Internet.

The girl agreed to meet the man at the East Waco Library and from there he took her to a local residence where she reported she was sexually assaulted.
