MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A 36-year-old Minot man has been sentenced to three years in prison for sexting a 17-year-old girl who became his wife, but it won’t be tacked on to a sentence he’s currently serving.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2tiDVzs) that Thomas Hannibal Drumgold II pleaded guilty Wednesday to promoting obscenity to a minor and possession of child pornography.

Drumgold allegedly had nude photos of the girl on his phone and had sexually explicit phone conversations with her while in jail. They were married a few months later.

Judge Todd Cresap said he was conflicted, noting that Drumgold’s wife asked to have the charges dropped and the woman’s mother had asked for the maximum five years.

Cresap ruled the sentence could be served concurrently with a five-year sentence for dealing drugs.
