A judge in Sheridan has sentenced a man to serve from 60 to 90 years in prison on five convictions of sexual abuse of a minor.
District Judge John Fenn sentenced 26-year-old Andrew W. Deeds on Thursday. The news is coming in from The Associated Press.
At sentencing Fenn said there should be no chance for Deeds to re-enter society, anytime soon. The judge called Deeds' crime "one of the highest," and said the sexuality of a human being is wired and difficult to change.
The judge told the victim's family that he hopes the prison sentence he imposed on Deeds gives them some closure and finality.
