PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - A 34-year-old suburban Omaha man has been sentenced to up to 65 years in prison for participating in the sexual abuse of his 5-year-old son.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/10mg4AC ) that the man was sentenced Wednesday in Sarpy County District Court. He had faced up to 105 years for first-degree sexual assault, visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct and child abuse.

But the judge cited the man’s testimony against the boy’s mother for the lesser sentence.

The mother was found guilty last month in the case and faces up to life in prison when she’s sentenced next month.

Prosecutors say the couple recorded their abuse of the boy.

The Associated Press is not using their names to protect the identity of the boy.
