CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Casper man will spend up to 25 years in prison for repeatedly sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1PmaWC0 ) that 34-year-old Anthony John Hink was sentenced Tuesday to 22.5 to 25 years in prison.

Hink entered an Alford plea in August to one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of third-degree sexual abuse of a minor. An Alford plea means Hink does not admit to the crimes but acknowledges that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him.

Court records show the victim told authorities Hink abused her for more than a year beginning in 2013. She said he used force so she couldn’t move.

Hink was convicted in 2000 of third-degree sex abuse of a minor and is a registered sex offender.
