Judge Petty sentenced Adler Jr. to 10 years fixed, followed by 35 years indeterminate, for a total unified sentence of 45 years in prison.  Judge Petty also ordered Adler Jr. to register as a sex offender, submit a DNA sample to the Idaho database, and have no contact with the victim or any minor children for a period of 50 years. Adler Jr. was also ordered to pay a $5,000 civil penalty to the victim.

Adler Jr. was served with a felony warrant in April 2019 while being housed in the Ada County Jail on separate charges related to child pornography. The case was referred to the Nampa Police Department after investigators in the child pornography case found text messages on Adler’s phone that referenced a sexual encounter with a young girl several years ago. Nampa investigators later determined that Adler Jr. had molested a six-year-old girl while staying in a Nampa apartment complex back in 2012.

“Mr. Adler used his position of trust to molest an innocent young girl, and he continues to be a danger to our community,” said Prosecutor Bryan Taylor. “There is no doubt that he belongs in prison for a long, long time.”
