McCOOK, Nebraska — A McCook man convicted of sexually abusing two young girls has been sentenced to less than two years in jail.

The McCook Daily Gazette reports ( ) that 66-year-old Benito Garcia was sentenced earlier this week to 300 days in jail for a 2012 assault on a 6-year-old girl in Red Willow County. He was sentenced to another 300 days for assaults on a Frontier County girl under 12 that prosecutors say took place over a six-year period.

Garcia was sentenced after earlier pleading no contest to two misdemeanor counts of nonconsensual sexual contact in a deal with prosecutors. In exchange for his pleas, four felony counts of child sex assault and abuse were dropped.

Garcia must also register as a sex offender upon his release from jail.
