Cheyenne, Wyo. - The man suspected in the disappearance of a Cheyenne toddler has been sentenced to no less than 18 years and no more than 20 years in prison (the maximum).
Logan Rogers appeared in court Friday morning, after pleading Guilty to manslaughter and reckless child endangerment in November
Judge Thomas Campbell handed down that sentencing to Rogers as the family members of 13 month old Silas Ojeda asked for the maximum sentence.
Rogers had several outbursts in court, saying he wanted to withdraw his plea. He said everything he told investigators during in the investigation was a lie and he is innocent.
However, Judge Campbell ignored those outbursts, saying he was “having a little trouble struggling with this outburst today but [Rogers] has made the situation that he arrived at.”
Campbell went on to say there were many considerations when handing out sentences, including criminal history, remorse, and acceptance of responsibility.
Ojeda has been missing and presumed dead since October 2016.
