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.
