ELKO — Former Elko Police Capt. Aaron Hughes was sentenced Thursday to life in prison for incest.
Hughes, 41, was arrested in 2008 and charged with incest and using a minor in the production of pornography after sheriff’s deputies found a video file of Hughes and a 17-year-old female relative engaging in sexual acts.
He accepted a plea deal from the district attorney’s office in January when he admitted to incest and the prosecution dropped the pornography charge.
Hughes' will have a parole hearing after two years. He received credit for 86 days time served when he was arrested in 2008.
