PORT ANGELES — A 19-year-old Port Angeles man was sentenced to more than seven years in prison after pleading guilty to raping an 8-year-old boy, but the judge suspended all but one year of that sentence.
The Peninsula Daily News, citing the Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, reported Wednesday that Nicholas Tanner Lippert was sentenced last Thursday to seven years, nine months in prison for first-degree rape of a child.
All but 12 months of the 93-month sentence were suspended on the condition that Lippert complete a special sex offender sentencing alternative, the Daily News said.
Clallam County Superior Court Judge Erik Rohrer ordered the sex offender treatment program due to Lippert’s age and lack of criminal history, Chief Criminal Deputy Michele Devlin told the newspaper.
Lippert must register as a sex offender for life, Devlin added.
