A former Burlington city councilman and professional photographer will be sent to prison for sexually abusing teenage girls.

Christopher King used to run Daisy Frames, a studio that specialized in family, wedding, and senior portraits.

King was accused of assaulting girls who had hired him to take their senior pictures.

In August a Des Moines County jury found King guilty of two counts of 3rd degree sexual abuse, assault with the intent to commit sexual abuse, and another assault charge.

On Monday King was sentenced to 32 years in the Iowa Department of Corrections.
