Nebraskan gets 25 years in Iowa child sex case

GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) — A Nebraska man has been given 25 years in prison for sexually abusing girls ages 7 and 8 in western Iowa.

The Daily Nonpareil says (http://bit.ly/1m4MkAz ) 64-year-old John Schondelmeyer, of Bellevue, Neb., was sentenced on Monday. He'd been found guilty of two counts of sex abuse and two counts of lascivious acts with a child.

The Mills County Sheriff's Office says Schondelmeyer was in the process of moving to Fayetteville, N.C., when he was arrested Oct. 17, 2013, at his Nebraska home.

Schondelmeyer will be transferred to Nebraska, where he faces more child sex charges.
