Jefferson man who sexually assaulted little sister avoids prison

GREENE COUNTY, Iowa -- A man convicted of indecent contact with a child avoids prison time, but he will have to register as a sex offender.

On Monday, a judge accepted Noah Exline's guilty plea and he received a two-year suspended prison sentence, fines, and probation. Exline was originally charged with seven counts of second-degree sex abuse against his younger sister, Paige Exline.

According to WHO Channel 13, Noah and Paige's father James Exline also molested her between June 2016 and April 2017. He is currently serving a 75-year prison sentence.

Paige and her cousin Shakiah Cockerham died in a fire set by Noah's step brother and James' son Patrick Thompson. He is serving a sentence of life in prison for first-degree murder and arson.
