He has been sentenced to 4 years in prison, followed by 5 years of supervision after release. He has been fined $12,500. He will be required to attend sex offender classes while in custody and must register as a sex offender for life.
The sentencing was originally scheduled for August of 2013, and has been continued seven times since then.
I really had no idea what the final sentence would be. The original sentencing guidelines called for 5-10 years, however he pleaded early in exchange for a shorter sentence. I had heard he might get as much as 4.5 years and as few as 18 months. I can live with this verdict.
I have been an absolute wreck leading up to this. I was hoping for the best and fearing the worst. I feel like I can breathe again.
Thanks to my lovely Facebook friends for holding my hand through this.
