SIOUX CITY | A Sioux City man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Thursday for molesting three young girls.
Richard Mackeller, 54, pleaded guilty in Woodbury County District Court to three counts of lascivious acts with a child.
District Judge John Ackerman also ordered Mackeller to serve a special sex offender sentence, in which he will be on lifetime parole after completing his prison sentence. If he were to violate terms of the special sentence, he could be sent to prison. He also must register with the Iowa Sex Offender Registry for the rest of his life.
From August 2011 through September 2013, Mackeller touched the girls while they were sleeping. All three were under the age of 14 at the time.
