A Sun Valley monster could spend his life in prison after molesting a 10-year-old girl over for several weeks, according to the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office.
Alexander Ryan Jensen, 34, was sentenced on Wednesday to two consecutive life terms of imprisonment, officials with the district attorney’s office said in a news release.
In May, the pedophile pleaded guilty to two counts of lewdness with a child under 14. He must serve 20 years before becoming eligible for parole.
In December last year, deputies with the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a girl who suffered sexual abuse by a relative.
The girl told counselors at her elementary school about instances of abuse that she had experienced. She was then interviewed by investigators at the Washoe County Child Advocacy Center.
At the child molester’s sentencing hearing, Deputy District Attorney Nickolas Graham argued that children should be treasured, “not used for perverse sexual gratification, as Jensen has done,” officials said in the news release.
He was initially booked into the Washoe County Detention facility on three charges including lewdness two counts of a child under 14 and one count of sexual assault against a child under 14.
