A Boise man convicted of sexual battery of a minor was sentenced Wednesday to serve up to 30 years in prison, the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office said in a news release.

Darin Ogden, 46, was arrested back in September 2018 and initially charged with lewd conduct, sexual battery with a minor aged 16 or 17 and production of sexually exploitative material of a child. A jury found Ogden guilty in March of sexual battery and of causing, inducing or permitting a child to be used for sexually exploitative material.

Fourth District Judge Michael J. Reardon sentenced Ogden to up to 30 years in prison, but he will be eligible for parole after serving 15. Reardon also ordered that Ogden not have contact with children for 30 years.
