A Roy man was sentenced to jail time and lengthy probation after he admitted to sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl he baby-sat.

Lance Eugene Jacks, 19, was originally charged in 2nd District Court with sodomy on a child and aggravated sexual abuse of a child, both first-degree felonies.

In May, as part of a plea agreement, Jacks pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual abuse of a child, and the sodomy charge was dismissed.

On Wednesday, Judge Scott Hadley sentenced Jacks to 550 days in jail and 120 months probation, and also ordered the man to complete a sexual abuse therapy program. He is also prohibited from living in a home with a child for at least a year.

According to charging documents, Jacks — a family friend and baby sitter of the victim — forced the girl to perform sex acts on him at his home on Oct. 23, 2012.

After the girl told her mother what happened, the mother went to the police and the girl was interviewed at the Children’s Justice Center.
