Man gets 71-73 years for sexually assaulting teen girl

June 27, 2019

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A man convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage girl has been given 71 to 73 years in prison.

Lancaster County District Court records say 42-year-old Joshua Kandler was sentenced Wednesday. He’d been convicted in May of sexual assault and other crimes.

Police arrested him on Feb. 1, 2018, after Kandler confirmed portions of the girl’s statement that he was educating her on sexuality. The 16-year-old had told authorities that she and Kandler had sex several times in 2017.

He denied her report and testified that she’d made up stories about being sexually abused.
