A Michigan father and his son will spend years in prison for raping the same underage girl.

Marc Rowe Sr., 45, and his son, Marc Rowe Jr., 19, were convicted earlier this year of several counts of criminal sexual conduct for sexually abusing the girl for two years, starting when she was 12, MLive reports.

The elder Rowe will serve 22 to 35 years in prison, according to the New York Daily News. His son will serve at least three years. The family members were sentenced just hours apart, MLive reported on Tuesday.

The father sexually assaulted the victim from 2012 until May 2014, at which point his son began to assault the girl, who was then in eighth grade. The younger Rowe was a freshman in college at the time.

Most of the abuse took place at the father's residence, where he "coerced the victim to submit by exerting his authoritative position," according to an arrest warrant.
