Scottsbluff man sentenced to at least 60 years in prison for sexually assaulting boy


SCOTTSBLUFF, Nebraska — A Scottsbluff man convicted of sexually assaulting a child has been sentenced to at least 60 years in prison.

A Nebraska judge sentenced 47-year-old Michael Sessions on Tuesday. He was convicted on two counts of felony sexual assault and sentenced to 30 to 40 years for each charge.

A 19-year-old man tells deputies that Sessions had sexually assaulted him since he was 6 years old. Deputies arranged for the victim to wear a concealed microphone when he met with Sessions. They say he admitted to the sex acts in the recordings.
