LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — A former Southern California youth soccer coach has been sentenced to over 130 years in prison for molesting 15 children.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say 54-year-old Renoir Vincent Valenti was sentenced Friday to 130 years, 8 months to life and ordered to pay $450,000 in victim restitution and register as a sex offender for life. He had faced a maximum sentence of 154 years to life.

He was found guilty in February of 20 counts involving 15 victims aged 8 to 12 years old.

Valenti was a coach in Lancaster with the American Youth Soccer Organization.

Prosecutors said that for nearly 17 years from 1995 to 2012, Valenti — who used several aliases — molested a girl and 14 boys, including six soccer players he coached.
