SURREY, N.D. (AP) - A 43-year-old Surrey man is accused of sexually abusing a girl multiple times over the course of about three years.

Authorities allege Russell Braun abused the girl from the time she was 12 until she was 15. He faces a felony charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child that could land him in prison for life without the chance for parole if he’s convicted.

Braun appeared in court Monday but did not enter a plea. He could do so at a Sept. 8 hearing. The Associated Press requested comment Wednesday from his defense attorney.
