LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A 42-year-old Hickman man has been sentenced to up to 25 years in prison for sexually abusing a young girl over a four-year period.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Jeremy Marteney was sentenced Wednesday in Lancaster County District Court to 8- to 25-years. He was convicted following a bench trial of two counts of first-degree sexual assault, child abuse and another sex crime.

Prosecutors alleged Marteney had abused the girl from the time she was 12 until she was 16.

She reported the assault three years ago, and sheriff’s deputies had her participate in a recorded call with Marteney. He was arrested later that day.
