A Weathersfield man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after pleading guilty Monday to more than two dozen sex charges involving several children.

Charles Bland, 59, entered the plea to child rape and child pornography charges in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court. Jury selection was scheduled to begin Monday.

Prosecutors said Bland victimized two girls, ages 10 and 14, who lived in the same trailer park as Bland. Several months after he was charged with raping the girls, police found pornographic images on his computer depicting children as young as 5 engaged in sex acts.
