CHADRON, Neb. (AP) _ A 31-year-old Nebraska Panhandle man has been given 60 to 90 years in prison on molestation and porn convictions.

James ``Jim'' Savery, of Chadron, was sentenced on Tuesday in Dawes County District Court.

Savery pleaded no contest in February to two counts of attempted sexual assault of a child and one of visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct. Prosecutors had lowered the sex assault charge, dismissed a third count and added the porn charge in exchange for Savery's pleas. Savery asked Judge Travis O'Gorman for mercy on Tuesday, but the judge declined and said the case was "a story of betrayal.''

Savery was arrested in May after Chadron Police served two search warrants on his home in the 200 block of North Lake Street based on information from the Rapid City Police Department. He was initially suspected of downloading and possessing child pornography and was arrested on 12 counts of sexual assault of a child and possession of child pornography.

Court documents accuse him of sexually assaulting two children, one under the age of 12 and one under the age of 16, from January 2011 until his arrest in May.

Savery was given consecutive sentences of 20 to 30 years on each count.
