COQUILLE — A Bandon man was sentenced to 300 months (25 years) in prison on a charge of first-degree sodomy for performing sexual acts with a person under 12 years old.

According to Coos County District Attorney R. Paul Frasier, Sean Jeffrey Haga, 32, received the severe sentence from Coos County Circuit Court Judge Martin Stone under the provisions of Jessica's Law. Haga must serve every day of his sentence and will not be eligible for parole or any other form of early release, Frasier said.

The charges came to light as a result of a child pornography investigation initiated by the FBI in June 2016. At that time, Haga was arrested on federal child pornography charges. Those charges are still pending in federal court. Haga will soon be returned to the custody of federal authorities to continue that prosecution process.

At the time of his arrest, Haga was an employee of the Bandon School District. His employment with the BSD ended in 2016 after his arrest. Frasier said that the investigation has not developed any evidence that any other person or child was a victim of Haga.
