A judge has sentenced a Grand Forks man to serve 30 years in prison for molesting a young girl over a period of nearly seven years.
Judge Lawrence Jahnke told 35-year-old Timothy James Olson that the case is "probably the most heinous child abuse case" he's seen in 20 years on the bench.
Olson pleaded guilty to felony sexual abuse of a child. Court documents say the abuse took place from January 2000, when the girl was about 6 years old, to December 2006. Prosecutor Meredith Larson says the abuse during that period happened about three times a week.
Olson apologized during his sentencing, and also described what he did as "heinous."
