A North Liberty man was sentenced to five years of probation for lascivious acts with a child.

Scott Christenson, now 19, admitted to having sex with a 12-year-old girl in June or July 2008, according to police records. Christenson said he was not aware of the girl’s age at the time of the incident.

He also has to register with the state’s Sex Offender Registry, and he will not be allowed to have contact with the girl for five years. Christenson was also placed on Intermediate Sanctions Continuum, meaning any future charges may land him in a halfway house.

Christenson, who said his ADHD medications help him behave, fidgeted as he sat in the small courtroom on Feb. 26.

“If you mess up … ” the district judge said.

“I go prison,” Christenson interrupted.
