SAN DIEGO (AP) — A registered sex offender who raped a 3-year-old girl in her San Diego home has been sentenced to 85 years in state prison.

Forty-seven-year-old Francisco Diaz was sentenced Monday.

Authorities say last August, Diaz broke into a neighbor’s Oak Park home and assaulted the toddler. When she cried out, he removed her from the house and was taking her to his home when the girl’s mother saw him.

A state website says Diaz was convicted in 2007 of annoying or molesting a child.
