WEST UNION (KWWL) -

A judge has sentenced Ricky Lee Putman, 42, to life in prison for first degree sexual assault. On December 13, 2011, a Fayette County jury found Putman guilty of sexually assaulting a child who had to be treated for injuries.

On May 23, 2010, the Fayette County Sheriff responded to a sexual assault call in Arlington. They were told a child was taken to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, and later to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, with injuries from a sexual assault.

After gathering evidence from two different homes, Putman was charged with first degree sexual assault.

A Fayette County jury found Putman guilty on Monday. He will be sentenced on Dec. 29.
