Sundance man gets 40 years for child molestation
August 5, 2021
Travis Price of Sundance has been sentenced to up to 40 years for two felony counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree.
He was originally accused of 13 individual felony charges related to sexual abuse of a minor. He pled guilty on two of the charges.
According to court reports, a Crook County Sheriff’s Office deputy on February 2 interviewed the victims, who claimed Price had touched them inappropriately while they were minors.
Price was interviewed after the deputy had spoken with the alleged victims and the deputy reports that Price commented several times during the interview that he was “so scared” and allegedly also said he didn’t mean for anything to happen but blamed an incident in his own past.
Judge John R. Perry sentenced Price to between 18 and 20 years in a penal institution on each of the counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree to which he pled guilty, with credit for 164 days already served.
As the sentences are to run consecutively, the full sentence will be between 36 and 40 years.
