Following the completion of the program, the teen will remain under probation until he turns 18 -- although he will be under the Logan County Juvenile Court’s jurisdiction until he is 21.
Should he re-offend before age 21, he will have to serve time in either the Department of Youth Services or an adult prison setting.
Where he would be behind bars and for how long depends on the offense that was committed.
As part of the sentence that was handed down on Tuesday, another sexual offense could yield up to 10 years in prison.

The judge said they took their time in terms of sentencing because the case involved a serious youthful offender specification and that resulted in a blended sentence of adult and juvenile punishments.
The teen had been free from custody since the plea deal on an electronic monitoring bracelet.
A sex offender classification for the teen is still under consideration, but a decision on that element of sentencing was tabled during today’s proceedings.
He also was ordered to not have contact with the victims or any other young children.
