A 31-year-old Lakeland man was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Monday for molesting an 11-year-old girl.

Humberto Cueto pled no contest to attempted sexual battery and lewd molestation. Circuit Judge Keith Spoto sentenced Cueto to 25 years in state prison as a minimum mandatory, meaning Cueto is not eligible for any type of gain time, followed by 10 years of probation. Once released, Cueto must be required to register as a sexual predator.

Assistant State Attorney Courtney Durden prosecuted the case.

Cueto was arrested by Lakeland Police in 2018.

State Attorney Brian Haas thanks ASA Durden and detectives from the Lakeland Police Department for their work on the case.
