Budha Gurung was sentenced to 5 to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to rape, sexual assault and related charges. 

A man who was a green card holder from Nepal and living in Lancaster city will serve up to 10 years in prison for raping a 16-year-old girl after giving her malt liquor in March, according to the Lancaster County District Attorney's office.

Budha Singh Gurung, 34, pleaded guilty to rape, sexual assault and related charges and was sentenced Wednesday.

Gurung was supposed to be driving the girl to her home on March 10, but instead he bought Four Lokos and took the girl back to his home on North Queen Street, according to Assistant District Attorney Fritz Haverstick.

After the girl was intoxicated, Gurung sexually assaulted her, Haverstick said.

Gurung knew the girl's family, according to prosecutors.

He also faces potential consequences regarding his immigration status, the district attorney's office said.
