A 27-year-old North Platte man who was convicted of raping a 15-year-old girl is going to prison.

On Monday, Lincoln County District Court Judge Richard Birch sentenced Stanley Churchwell to 15 to 25 years in prison.

According to court records, prosecutors say Churchwell raped the girl, who has a child from the assault, in July of last year.

    Hey look I know what he did was wrong but, remember he had a wife and a family that didn’t deserve the stigma of what he did. So keep the comments toward him polite and not so mean his mother is sitting next to me as well as his sisters and they are crying. So please remember the family members that are hurt by what he did.

    My friend was his wife and she moved out of town and out of state just to get a way from this she is working on getting a divorce. He damaged her just as much as he did that poor little girl. They had kids together two wonderful little boys that she lost because of this man. She is hurting just as much if not more than that little girl.
