A Lincoln man who sexually assaulted a 5-year-old girl he was babysitting will receive up to 45 years in prison.

Joshua Voight was sentenced Tuesday to 35 to 45 years behind bars.

The 36-year-old Voight pleaded no contest in October to first-degree sexual assault of a minor. Voight was arrested in May after the girl told her mother and investigators about the abuse.

Lancaster County District Court Judge Jodi Nelson ordered Voight to register as a sex offender after he is released from prison. He will be eligible for parole in about 17 years. Nelson called the crime disgusting and chastised Nelson for abusing his role as a baby sitter.
