HILO, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A former state Department of Land and Natural Resources officer was sentenced Monday to 23 years in prison.

Ethan Ferguson is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl at a park in Hilo on Jan. 1, 2016.

He was convicted of five counts of sexual assault in February and will have to register as a sex offender upon his release.

Ferguson will serve his sentences for the counts concurrently, which means he'll serve 10 years behind bars.
