(AP) -

A Sioux City man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for fondling a 14-year-old girl last year.

Federico Jimenez-Hernandez, 27, was sentenced Thursday after he pleaded guilty in Woodbury County District Court to one count of third-degree sexual abuse.

Jimenez-Hernandez must register as a sex offender upon his release from prison and will also remain on lifetime parole.

If he were to violate terms of the special sentence, he could be returned to prison.

His sentence will be served at the same time as a three-year federal prison sentence for selling methamphetamine.

Court documents say Jimenez-Hernandez fondled the girl after entering her room while she was sleeping.
