“You’re getting off light,” Tepe said, indicating Reber would have served a longer sentence if he had taken the case to trial.
Reber, 36, of Maineville, was indicted last June. He will get credit for four days in jail but be required to register as a sex offender for 25 years and live away from schools.
The victim and her mother agreed to the sentence, which avoids a trial, but both made statements during the hearing in Warren County Common Pleas Court.
“You did something to me,” the girl said. “I will not let you define me.”
The mother said she had to help her daughter through suicidal tendencies.

“You took something from her she can never get back,” the mother said. “I will do anything in my power to make her succeed.”
Reber declined an opportunity to make a statement.
Reber turned over samples for DNA tests in April after being accused of performing oral sex on the victim during the sleepover, according to a search warrant affidavit filed in Warren County Common Pleas Court.
The girl reported she awoke to find Reber “performing oral sex on her,” according to the warrant.
Reber was arrested on May 31 in Maineville, then released on bond and permitted to have contact with his children and go to work until Friday’s sentencing.
