An accused sexual predator has been sentenced to five years in prison for sexually assaulting a child.
Donald Warfield, 70, of North Platte was sentenced in Lincoln County District Court on Monday.
Prosecutors say a fifteen-year-old girl reported last year that Warfield began giving her gifts and inappropriately touching her when she was seven-years-old. She told authorities the sexual assaults gradually became worse and continued for three or four years.
Warfield entered a no-contest plea to the charge.
Last year, Warfield was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender and entered a plea to a reduced misdemeanor charge.
He was convicted in 2002 of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl.
When District Court Judge Richard Birch asked Warfield if he had anything to say, Warfield said “I don’t remember anything happening. That’s all I can say.”
Warfield was remanded to the Lincoln County Sheriff to await transport to Lincoln.
