"Byron Wiscombe, 45, will serve a minimum of 3 years and a maximum of 33 years in prison. District Judge Dane Watkins Jr. handed down the sentence Monday afternoon.

Wiscombe was charged with one count of felony lewd conduct with a child under 16, one count of felony sexual battery on a child, one count of felony video voyeurism, and one count of misdemeanor sexual battery.

He was also charged with another count of misdemeanor sexual battery in a separate case concerning a woman. He originally pleaded not guilty to all charges but a plea agreement was reached in November. Wiscombe agreed to plead guilty to felony lewd conduct with a child if all other charges, including the case concerning the woman, were dropped."

Yes, he's mormon

"Wiscombe is a former LDS bishopric counselor. They report that a victim in this case is non-related and was groomed by Wiscombe during LDS “worthiness” interviews.

Yes this is 3am from reddit. I will confirm via my reddit profile and on floodlit.

We updated his listing and posted about it on reddit today.

This is a very sad case. They all are.

Child sexual abuse is a serious problem in the lds church. The more light shined on it, the better.

Agreed. A lot of work to compile and keep updating all of the mormon child sex abuse, but good for you for putting all of this in one place.

I can only hope that shining a light on this will eventually cause LD$,Inc. to finally change course and do what is right to stop the abuse.

It would be a crying shame if he were put into the general prison population by mistake, wouldn't it?

She tried locking it, but he got in anyway. She knew because things in her room were rearranged in the overnight hours. Let's try not to blame the victim. In no way did she consent to this abuse.
