BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An enrolled member of the Three Affiliated Tribes accused of child sexual abuse dating back to 2003 has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Wilbert Ladue Jr., of New Town, pleaded guilty in February to aggravated sexual abuse. Authorities say the cases involved two girls who were younger than 12.

A federal public defender said Ladue has been a valued worker for the city of New Town for many years. The defense asked for a sentence of 15 years.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ordered that Ladue not be allowed to reside in a home or be in the company of anyone who has children under the age of 18, or date or socialize with anyone who has children under 18, without the approval of the probation officers.
