By  | 

A man guilty of kidnapping and sexually assault a Rockford girl two years ago will spend the next 45 years behind bars.

Thirty-five-year-old Scott Hillis lured a five-year-old girl into his car. He then took her to a wooded area by Swan Hillman School and sexually assaulted her. The attack happened in July of 2003.

The truth-in-sentencing law applies meaning Hillis will have to serve at least 85 percent of his 45-year sentence.
