A Douglas County district judge sentenced former Omaha child care worker Mark Mays, 25, to 26 to 60 years in prison for sexually assaulting eight children, and for possession of child pornography .Mays was sentenced on four counts, two counts of first-degree sexual assault, which can be between 10 and 20 years each; and two counts of visual depiction of sexual assault, which can be three to 10 years each.

“You violated most defenseless in our society. The ones who can’t talk about it and the ones who can’t understand it. I would only hope that maybe they won’t remember but we don’t know and we won’t know,” Judge Gary Randall said. “We know people sex assaulted as children are the most broken in our society.”
