A man in Carson City has received a life sentence in prison for lewd acts upon a child.

Carson City's district attorney says 29-year-old Jason Bender groped the child, a six-year-old girl, while her family members were in a nearby room.

During Monday's sentencing, Bender told the court he should not have to pay for his crime for the rest of his life.

But the victim's mother provided a statement saying Bender stole her daughter's innocence. And the district attorney says Bender showed no remorse for the crime.

Bender's life sentence includes a possibility of parole after serving ten years.

District Attorney Neil Rombardo says the sentence serves as a reminder that similar crimes against children will not be tolerated in the community.
