DETROIT (WKZO) -- A man who taught Islam to students in Detroit and Hamtramck will spend up to 50 years in prison for sexual assaulting three female family members. Mohammed Masroor was sentenced to 35 to 50 years behind bars Wednesday following his conviction earlier this month of 15 counts in the case.

Prosecutors claimed Masroor manipulated the three girls who were between ten and 13-years of age at the time of the assaults in 2000. His attorney says his client continues to maintain his innocence.
