A judge sentenced a Casper man to more than two decades behind bars Friday for his guilty pleas to four counts of sexual abuse of a minor.

Jason James Joreski entered Alford pleas in September to three counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of third-degree sexual abuse of a minor. An Alford plea means the defendant did not admit to the crimes, but the judge, after hearing from prosecutors, agreed that available evidence would lead to a conviction.

Prosecutors initially charged Joreski, 35, with 19 crimes earlier this year. They agreed to drop 15, though, in exchange for his pleas.

On Friday, Natrona County District Judge Catherine Wilking handed down a 22- to 24-year prison sentence to Joreski.

The Star-Tribune does not identify victims of sex crimes.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
