Raymond Merril Jessop was sentenced to 10 years in prison and an $8,000.00 fine.
He will have to serve a mandatory 5 year sentence and after that he becomes parole eligible. It is not mandatory parole — he will have to keep meeting with the parole board until he is paroled or his 10 year sentence is completed. Persons convicted of sexual assault of a child typically do 85% of their sentence. If Raymond insists that he was persecuted for his religious beliefs for 10 years, then he will spend 10 years in prison.
