GERING, Neb. — A 20-year-old Gering man has been sentenced to four to eight years in prison on charges of sexually assaulting two minor girls earlier this year.
Marco A. Garcia was sentenced last week on two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a minor. A third count of the same charge was dismissed.
Under state sentencing guidelines, Garcia could be released on parole after two years and probably will be freed after serving four years.
The charges involved two girls, 12 and 14 years old, according to an arrest affidavit.
