Man Sentenced 120 Years in Prison for Sex Crimes

Posted: Updated:

Dale Betlem was sentenced to no less than 120 years in prison today for sex crimes.

He committed 4 counts of 1st degree sex crimes, and will serve 30-60 years for each count, consecutively.

It's a case the prosecutor called one of the most disturbing he's seen. Betlem was arrested in Kincheloe last summer.

He was already a registered sex offender.

Last month, Betlem was found guilty of multiple sex crimes involving children younger than 13.

9&10's Alyssa Gambla and photojournalist Erin Malone have continuing coverage on the case.
