    MIAMI - FEBRUARY 02: A judges gavel rests on top of a desk in the courtroom of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African-Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the "Central Negro District." The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

    A Massachusetts man who previously served prison time for sexually abusing a child is now heading back to prison after pleading guilty to raping another boy.

    The Salem News reports 27-year-old Scott Deschenes was sentenced to seven to 10 years in prison Tuesday in connection with the March assault.

    Deschenes was serving probation for his previous conviction when he met the 12-year-old victim. Prosecutors say Deschenes invited the boy to his Salem apartment to play video games and then raped the child.

    State police linked Deschenes to the assault through a GPS device he was mandated to wear and DNA evidence.

    Deschenes' defense attorney said Tuesday the sentencing will give his client time to work on his own issues.
