Travis Horn, 25, sat motionless today as the judge sentenced him to a total of 40 years in prison today.

Horn was found guilty for sexually abusing a five year old girl back in February.

It happened back in 2013 when the five year old girl and her three year old sister were playing in their backyard.

The victim testified that Horn approached her, sexually abused her through her fence, and then offered her chocolate to not say a word.

A neighbor who did not want to be identified says it was heartbreaking to learn about the abused.

"You don't think about something like that happening that close but when it does it throws you in shock."

She says she was glad to learn he won't be able to hurt another child.

"You think of your child being in that situation and you are horrified ... you think oh my god ... even if it's someone else's child ... it's terrible."

Horn will have to serve 85 percent, or 34 years of his sentence, before he's eligible for parole.
