An Indiana man who was arrested after his case was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, has been sentenced to 52 years in prison for molesting children.

William C. Davis was convicted by a jury in Mount Vernon, Ind., of three counts of child molestation in February. Three boys testified they were abused by Davis when they were 13, 12 and 5.

The US talk-show queen used her programme to broadcast Davis' image and offered $100,000 for information leading to the 33-year-old's capture. Two people split the reward following the arrest on October 6, 2005.

"With the media attention, plenty of people have told me they're going to be waiting on me to kill me," Contactmusic  quoted Davis as saying at his trial.
