A 52-year- old man has been sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping his 6-year-old neighbor and then taking her to a nearby residence, where he took off her clothes and made her “play house. ”

On Thursday, a Tarrant County jury convicted Joseph Mitchell Berman of one count of aggravated kidnapping, one count of sexual performance of a child under 14, and one count of indecency with a child.

They then sentenced Berman to life in prison on each of the first two counts and to the maximum 20 years in prison on the indecency count. All of the sentences will run concurrently.
