PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) -- A Sedona man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in connection with a sexual abuse case.
 
Yavapai County prosecutors say 53-year-old Kirk Harris also must register as a sex offender and will be on lifetime probation after serving his prison term.
 
They say Harris pleaded guilty to attempted sexual abuse of a minor, attempted sexual conduct with a minor and furnishing harmful items to a minor.
 
Sheriff's officials say the victim contacted them in February 2012 about allegedly being sexually abused by Harris in Phoenix and the Camp Verde area.
 
The allegations were investigated by a sheriff's detective and Harris was arrested at his Sedona home.
 
The gender of the victim wasn't immediately released by authorities Tuesday.
