(NAPLES, Fla) - A former Indy race car driver has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for child sexual abuse.

The Naples Daily News reports that 45-year-old Jon Herb pleaded no contest in court Monday to lewd and lascivious molestation and 13 counts of child pornography possession.

Court records show that Herb was arrested in October 2013 after his estranged wife found 243 pictures and three videos on Herb's laptop of Herb engaged in a sexual act with a 4-year-old girl.

Herb made 16 starts in the Indy Racing League from 2000 to 2007. The racing website champcarstats.com reports that Herb raced twice in the Indianapolis 500, finishing 27th in 2001 and 32nd in 2007.
