Clinchco, VA man gets 114 years for child sex crimes
A Dickenson County, Virginia Circuit Court judge has imposed a century-long prison sentence on a Clinchco man who admitted to multiple sex offenses in December.
Robert James Skeens, 47, received a total of 114 years of confinement on seven felony counts including five counts of aggravated sexual battery, according to Commonwealth's Attorney Seth Baker. A four-year sentence was imposed for four misdemeanor counts.
The years of the sentence run consecutively, Baker said, and the crimes involved a juvenile.
Court documents show the offenses began in late 2015 and continued until Skeens' arrest in April 2016. Skeens was also sentenced to three years of post release supervision, Baker noted.
