GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) _ A Grand Island man convicted in the kidnapping and rape of a 4-year-old girl has been given 96 to 100 years in state prison.
Judge James Livingston on Tuesday sentenced 27-year-old Abraham Richardson to two consecutive terms of 48 to 50 years. Richardson had pleaded no contest in April after prosecutors lowered the charges and dropped another.
Prosecutors say he kidnapped the girl from a Grand Island apartment on Oct. 2, 2011, and savagely assaulted her. Richardson already faces 20 years in federal prison on a child pornography conviction. Livingston ordered Richardson to serve his two state sentences after his federal sentence has been completed.
