RENO, Nev. (AP) - A 56-year-old Reno man has been sentenced to life in prison for sexually abusing a young relative beginning when she was as young as 10 years old.
Javier Reyes Gonzalez pleaded guilty in September to sexual assault of a child and lewdness with a child under 14.
Washoe County Deputy District Attorney Derek Dreiling says the abuse lasted from 2005 until 2010 when the teenage girl finally told a school counselor.
Washoe District Judge Steven Kosach sentenced him on Wednesday
to consecutive life terms. He will have to serve at least 30 years before he is eligible for parole.
