Tyrone Hughley, 37, will not be eligible for parole for at least 60 years for sexually assaulting the girls, ages 10, 12 and 13 at the time of the attacks, WKYC reported.

According to a news release issued by Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malle, the girls were raped by Hughley at their Cleveland home between June 1, 2020, and Aug. 31, 2021.

Per the press release, both the 10- and 12-year-old girls were impregnated, and the fetal DNA from both girls revealed a “99.9999999% match” with Hughley, WOIO reported.

Hughley was arrested in November 2021 and pleaded guilty to three rape counts on Tuesday, the news release stated.

He will also be listed as a Tier III sex offender and must register as such every 90 days for the rest of his life, WOIO reported.

“Few crimes reach the level of depravity as the ones committed by Tyrone Hughley. He sexually assaulted three siblings and impregnated a 10-year-old and a 12-year-old,” O’Malley said in a prepared statement, adding, “He has earned every day of his minimum 60-year sentence. I pray this family and these girls heal from this unimaginable trauma.”
