A Godfrey man was sentenced Tuesday afternoon to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to a Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault charge in October. 35 year old Aaron M. Delong pleaded guilty on October 6, 2015 to the Class X felony of sexually assaulting a 12- year-old-female in 2013. The victim knew her attacker prior to the assault.
