Alec Dave, a McDermitt resident was recently ordered to serve four life sentences on four category A felony lewdness with a child under 14 years old charges.
Dave pleaded guilty to the charges in November 2021, at 24 years old and the charges indicate that there were four different juveniles involved in the case.
Each category A felony count carries a life sentence in prison with the possibility of parole after 10 years has been served and a maximum $10,000 fine.
Humboldt County Public Defender Matthew Stermitz represented Dave in the case, and asked the court to order the charges to run concurrently, meaning they would all be served at the same time.
Sixth Judicial District Court Judge Michael Montero ordered a $10,000 fine on each charge, as well as the state directed sentence of life in prison with possibility of parole after 10 years for each charge.
The sentences were ordered to be served consecutively, meaning they will be served one after the other, making a minimum of 40 years to be served before eligibility for parole and a total $40,000 fine in addition to the DNA and forensic fees and $750 psychosexual evaluation, with 359 days credit for time served.
The mother of three of the victims gave a statement in court indicating how her family and kids have been negatively impacted by the events, and another victim was present but declined to give a victim impact statement to the court.
Dave did not offer an allocution statement at his allotted opportunity to do so to the court.
