A 30-year-old Bemidji man was sentenced Monday to a three-year stayed prison sentence for indecent exposure and sexual digital communication with a child.

According to court documents, Caleb Andrew Werner could face 25 months in prison, a little over two years, for violating the terms of his stayed sentence.

Werner was initially charged almost one year ago today, and entered two guilty pleas in November.
