A 60-year-old Davenport man has been sentenced to at least 30 years in prison for having sex with a teenager he was homeschooling.
The Nebraska Attorney General’s Office reports a Thayer County District Court jury earlier had convicted Harold Stone of four counts of First Degree Sexual Assault of a Child and one count of felony Child Abuse.
Stone has been sentenced to 30 to 40 years in prison.
According to the Attorney General’s Office, Stone began home schooling the 15-year-old victim at his business and home in Davenport in the fall of 2014. Stone and the teenager became involved in a sexual relationship that continued until early 2015.
The victim disclosed the abuse. The Thayer County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska Attorney General’s office began an investigation which included a search of the residence which uncovered a variety of electronic evidence crucial in the trial.
