Marion County man sentenced to 160 years in prison

A Marion County man will spend the rest of his life behind bars, and he is no stranger to the prison system.

Larry Allan Merritt of Columbia was sentenced Tuesday to 160 years in prison, 20 years for each count of sexual battery on an adult female.

He was convicted in May. When he committed the crime in 2006, Merritt was on probation for another charge.
