STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A Storm Lake man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for sexually assaulting a young child.

Nee Htoo, 32, was sentenced Wednesday in Beuna Vista County District Court, the Sioux City Journal reported. Htoo entered an Alford plea last month to second-degree sexual abuse, lascivious acts with a child and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse. An Alford plea is one in which the defendant does not admit guilty, but acknowledges there is enough evidence to secure a conviction.

Prosecutors say Htoo sexually abused a girl at least four times in 2016 and 2017, when she was 6 or 7 years old.
