CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — A Cedar Falls man will spend up to 50 years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman after breaking into her home in September 2013.

A judge gave 21-year-old Benjamin Lane two 25-year sentences to be served one after the other.

Lane will have to serve at least 17 and a half years before he will be eligible for parole.

Police say Lane entered the woman’s home with a knife and sexually assaulted her.

Lane confessed to the attack but denied he threatened the victim with a knife
