PHOENIX (AP) - A Scottsdale man accused of molesting his girlfriend's young son has been sentenced to 35 years in prison and lifetime probation.
   
Maricopa County prosecutors say 33-year-old Ali Chitsaz was sentenced Friday.
   
They say Chitsaz earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted molestation of a child, two counts of molestation of a child and one count of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor.
   
He was arrested in October 2011 and originally charged on 37 counts including sexual conduct with a minor, sexual exploitation of a minor and furnishing obscene materials to a minor.
   
Scottsdale police say Chitsaz met the boy's mother on an online dating site.
   
Investigators say the abuse occurred at Chitsaz's condominium in Scottsdale while he was babysitting the then 6-year-old boy.
