The Honorable Diane C. Freniere sentenced Lehtola to 15-17 years in state prison on the Aggravated Rape of a Child (5 year age difference/victim under 12) conviction and 5 years probation from and after the committed portion of the sentence on the Rape of a Child and Indecent Assault and Battery on a Child Under Fourteen convictions.
