CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming man has been sentenced to 30 to 35 years in prison for raping a 12-year-old girl and possessing child pornography.

Aaron Rushing was sentenced Wednesday by state District Judge Daniel Forgey.

Rushing pleaded guilty in May to three counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of possession of child pornography.

Public Defender Robert Oldham had asked the judge to suspend Rushing’s sentences on the first-degree sexual abuse charges and serve five to 12 years on the child porn charge.

Instead, Rushing received three sentences of 30 to 35 years in prison and another of five to 12 years, although all the sentences will all run concurrently.
