BREAKING: Cheyenne Man Found Guilty of Child Sex Abuse
A Laramie County jury has found a 29-year-old Cheyenne man guilty of sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl.
According to an affidavit, Cody Nelson reportedly touched the inside part of the girl's vagina with his finger on two separate occasions between Jan. 1-23, 2016. He was 26 at the time.
Nelson was facing two counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, but one of the counts was dismissed during his trial because the girl only testified to one of the incidents.
Nelson is facing 25 to 50 years in prison. He is currently being held on a $25,000 cash bond awaiting sentencing.
