A Tohono O'odham man has been sentenced to 16 1/2 years in prison for sexually abusing two minors on the reservation, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Curtis Michael Garcia, 33, of Sells was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Raner C. Collins.

After he is released from prison, Garcia will have to register as a sex offender and will be on lifetime supervision.

He pleaded guilty last August to two counts of abusive sexual contact.
