Jake Laner, who is 26, has been sentenced in Madison County District Court on a charge of first-degree sexual assault.
His prison sentence is 25 to 50 years but a mandatory minimum means he must serve 20 years before he’s eligible for release.
Laner has two previous sex crime convictions in Cuming County from 2004 and was a registered sex offender last year when he became involved with a 15-year-old girl who became pregnant.
In court Friday he blamed the victim’s mother for condoning the relationship.
If he’s released from prison he’ll be under parole supervision for life.
