      A Minatare man is behind bars for 30 to 40 years after making a plea deal in a child sex assault and porn case.

      David Nielsen, 60, was sentenced to prison on Wednesday.

      Nielsen was originally charged with sexual assault of a child and four counts of possessing child pornography. He pleaded no contest to attempted sexual assault of a child, in exchange prosecutors dropped the porn charges.

      Scotts Bluff County court records say someone who borrowed Nielsen's phone to send a text found nude photos of a teenage girl on the phone. The records say Nielsen later told an investigator that he'd taken pictures of the girl and that he'd had sex with her since she was 13 or 14. She's 16 now.
