On Tuesday, a Todd County man was sentenced to 15 years in prison for aggravated sexual abuse of a minor. The man, who cannot be named due to the nature of the crime, was found guilty of two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor and one count of sexual exploitation of a minor.
The Todd County Sheriff’s Office began investigating the case in October 2018 after receiving a report from the victim’s family. During the investigation, it was discovered that the man had been sexually abusing the victim since she was 11 years old. The victim, now 16, bravely testified against her abuser in court.
The judge presiding over the case sentenced the man to 15 years in prison, with an additional 10 years of supervised release. He will also have to register as a sex offender upon his release.
The Todd County Sheriff’s Office is commending the victim for her courage in coming forward and speaking out against her abuser. They are also encouraging any other victims of sexual abuse to come forward and report their abusers.
Sexual abuse is a serious crime that can have long-lasting effects on victims. It is important for victims to know that they are not alone and that help is available. If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual abuse, please contact your local law enforcement agency or the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).
