FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A 48-year-old North Dakota man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of abusive sexual contact of a minor.

U.S. Attorney Christopher Myers says Alonzo Chico was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson on Tuesday. Chico lived in the home of the child-victim’s grandmother on the Spirit Lake Reservation.

Myers says that sometime between the fall of 2010 and the spring of 2011, Chico inappropriately touched the child while the child lay sleeping. Myers says that on another occasion during this same time frame, Chico grabbed the child by the arm and attempted to have him touch him inappropriately.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Janice Morley.
