MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) – Former Delta Mayor Roy Nelson has been sentenced to 90 days of work release and probation for molesting a 12-year-old boy.

Nelson pleaded guilty in August to attempted sexual assault on a child and unlawful sexual contact.

According to the Montrose Daily Press, the youth waited five years to report the crimes.

Supporters filled the courtroom at sentencing Tuesday to tell the judge that Nelson’s crimes did not represent his true character.
