A MAN from Young who had sex with a girl aged under 16 will be behind bars until the middle of 2016.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was sentenced in Sydney District Court yesterday after pleading guilty in Wagga District Court on August 5 to four counts of aggravated sexual intercourse.
A trial was set down in August but was called off after the man admitted his guilt.
He has been in custody since his plea.
The offences were committed between 2009 and late 2011.
He was arrested last year.
Judge Stephen Norrish imposed four separate sentences, which will be served concurrently.
The longest sentence was three years, with a non-parole period of two years.
It was backdated to July 22 and will expire on July 21, 2016.
The man will be eligible for supervised parole after that date.
