42-year-old Mills man sentenced to 28-40 years in prison for sexually abusing minor


CASPER, Wyoming — A 42-year-old Mills man who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a minor has been sentenced to 28 to 40 years in prison.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports ( ) Alvin Riley was sentenced Wednesday on charges of first- and third-degree sexual abuse of a minor. He was arrested in March 2013 about four months after his victim told a social worker that Riley had repeatedly abused her.

The arrest occurred after DNA testing showed there was a 99.99 percent chance Riley was the father of a stillborn child born to the girl, according to court records. Police exhumed the body to test the DNA.
