    WCSH

    A Maine man will spend the rest of his life in prison for sexually assaulting two boys under the age of 12. 

    A judge ruled Wednesday that Wade Hoover would serve a 60-year sentence for the state once he finishes serving his federal sentence, according to necn affiliate WCSH.

    Hoover pleaded guilty to assaulting two boys back in 2008. He also took photographs of the acts. 

    He worked at the National Alliance on Mental Illness and ran a martial arts studio. He knew both of the boys and their families. 

    Hoover apologized in court and asked for forgiveness from both boys and their families.
