HEBRON, Neb. – A southeastern Nebraska man has been sentenced to 30 to 40 years in prison for several counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child.
The Hastings Tribune reports that 60-year-old Harold Stone, of Davenport, was sentenced Thursday in Thayer County District Court.
A jury convicted Stone in June of four counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child and one count of felony child abuse.
Prosecutors say Stone began a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl at his business and home.
The victim disclosed the sexual abuse in May 2015, and a search of Stone’s home turned up a variety of digital photos, emails and text messages.
