Investigators say the case began last July, when his common-law wife found digital images on a camera that showed him sexually assaulting a child. Investigators also recovered more than 70 images of child pornography on computers in his home.

Williams, who's 23, must serve three life sentences for super aggravated sexual assault of a child under the age 6.

He was also sentenced to 720 years in prison for the child pornography found on his computer and digital camera.
