WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man accused of sexually abusing two women in the 1990s while living in North Dakota has been ordered to serve two years of probation.

The Williston Herald (https://bit.ly/2bX62Av ) reports that 56-year-old Robert Pagan, of Rapid City, South Dakota, was sentenced Wednesday in Williston after he entered Alford pleas to two counts of child neglect. That means he acknowledged there was sufficient evidence to convict him but did not admit guilt.

Northwest Judicial District Judge Joshua Rustad handed down a two-year deferred sentence that calls for two years of supervised probation.

Pagan was charged with three counts of gross sexual imposition in 2014 after two women told police that Pagan sexually abused them when they were children. As part of a plea agreement, one of the three counts was dropped. The remaining two were amended to child neglect.
