Iowan gets 50 years for abuse of girls

SAC CITY (AP) – A Sac City man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for sexually abusing four girls.

Court documents show Christopher Carnine, 35, received the sentence Monday in Sac County District Court on two charges of second-degree sexual abuse and two charges of third-degree sexual abuse.

Carnine was ordered to serve two 25-year sentences consecutively, while two 10-year sentences will be served at the same time.

Carnine was accused of performing sex acts with young girls beginning in 2009. Two of the girls were under 12 at the time. He was also accused of inappropriately touching a 16-year-old girl this year.

Carnine must serve 35 years in prison before he is eligible for parole. He must also register as a sex offender.
