Man Pleads Guilty to Child Rape Several Years after Crime

Posted: Updated:

HERMISTON, OR - A man from Omaha, Nebraska will spend nearly a decade in prison for having sex with a girl in Hermiston, before she was 12-years-old.

A judge sentenced 39-year-old Jason Michael Garcia on Friday after he pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sodomy. 

Prosecutors say Garcia harmed the girl at a home in Hermiston back in 1997, but she didn't report the crime until several years later. 

Garcia was arrested in July of 2013. 

The man also faced a felony charge for indecency with a child in Bexar County, Texas, but the district attorney there dismissed the case when after Garcia entered the guilty plea.
