Police were tipped off in January to the relationships when one of the girls' mothers reported finding naked pictures of Douce on her daughter's cellphone, along with inappropriate text messages.

Douce pleaded guilty in August to two counts of child seduction, a "C" felony.

A Hamilton County judge sentenced him Thursday to eight years in prison for each charge, to be served consecutively.
