Etan Patz case: Hernandez gets 25 to life in prison

( CNN) The bodega clerk convicted for the 1979 murder of New York first-grader Etan Patz was sentenced on Tuesday to 25 times to life in prison.

Pedro Hernandez, 56, was convicted of abduction and murder in February, nearly 40 times after the 6-year-old disappeared on May 25, 1979.

Etan left home to walk to a school bus stop and was not seen again. In the early 1980 s, his photo appeared on milk cartons across the country, the first time the method was used to try to locate missing children.
