RENO, Nev. (KOLO)-- A man will spend the rest of his life in prison after getting 12 consecutive life sentences for sex crimes involving a girl.

Jeffery Lynn Fluckiger, 56, was convicted in a jury trial of charges of sexual assault against a child younger than 14, lewdness with a child younger than 14 and production and possession of child pornography, the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office said Friday.

Under a sentence handed down by Washoe District Court Judge Egan Walker, Fluckiger must serve at least 271 years in prison before he can be paroled.

A 14-year-old girl told authorities in July 2017 she had been sexually assaulted by Fluckiger for the previous five years, the district attorney’s office said. The Reno Police Department investigated and also found child pornography, including recordings of rapes of the reporting child.
