However, District Judge Bradly S. Ford retained jurisdiction for a year, meaning Alexander Gonzalez Garcia, 57, of Middleton, could get out of prison after a year if he responds well to treatment programs.
Garcia was initially charged with lewd conduct with a child, but pleaded guilty in March to sexual abuse of a minor. He must register as a sex offender and have no contact with the girl, her family or any girls under the age of 18.
Prosecutors say he molested the girl during a July 2013 potluck at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Nampa.
