A Warrenton man was sentenced to more than eight years in prison Tuesday for sexually abusing two girls.

Dennis James Wentz, 35, was given a 75-month sentence by Circuit Court Judge Phil Nelson for first-degree sexual abuse involving a teenage girl, plus another 24 months for attempted sex abuse involving a 4-year-old.

Wentz was arrested last July and later pleaded guilty to the two charges.
