A convicted s*x offender has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for fathering a child with an 11-year-old girl in western New York. AP reports:

Jacky Berry of Niagara Falls had pleaded guilty on charges of having a s*xual relationship with the girl in 2010.

The girl, now 16, gave birth to a son in 2011. Authorities say DNA testing confirmed Berry, 53, was the father.

Berry also was convicted in 1990 for sexually abusing a 7-year-old girl and served eight years in prison.

The Buffalo News reported that Berry offered an apology in court Friday but refused to be interviewed by a probation officer.

“He didn’t feel there was anything to add,” defense attorney James Faso Jr. said. “He had a child with this child, and feels terrible he made her grow up faster than she should grow up.”

Judge Sara Sheldon also imposed 20 years of post-release supervision for Berry, saying, “This is in essence a life sentence.”
