BURLEY, Idaho (AP) - A 36-year-old south-central Idaho man who used duct tape to pin a 10-year-old girl’s arms behind her back before sexually abusing her has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The Times-News reports (https://bit.ly/PiEeXi) that Gregg Neal Bedke of Burley received the sentence Tuesday in 5th District Court.

Bedke received two concurrent terms of 10 years on two felony counts of sexual abuse of a minor under age 16 and battery with the intent to commit a serious felony. He must serve at least six years before becoming eligible for parole.

But those sentences won’t start until after he serves a sentence from 2007 of two to 10 years for felony aggravated battery.

Bedke was on parole for that crime when he abused the girl.
