A federal judge on Monday sentenced a man to 35 years in prison for sexual abuse committed between 2012 and 2018 in Wagner.

Jeremy Aungie was sentenced to two concurrent 420-month sentences followed by five years of supervised release.

Aungie was indicted in June for engaging in a sexual act with a child under the age of 12 between June 22, 2012, and June 21, 2013, and for engaging in a sexual act with a child older than 12 and younger than 16 between Aug. 16, 2017, and May 16, 2018.

After a three-day trial, a jury found Aungie guilty of both counts of aggravated sexual abuse on June 6.

Aungie was ordered to pay a $200 special assessment and was remanded to the U.S. Marshals Service immediately after sentencing.
