Rapid City man headed to prison for sexual abuse


A KOTA Territory man is headed to prison for sexually abusing a young girl.  Patrick Ford, 34, of Rapid City was sentenced to 12 years in prison for having sexual contact with a girl when she was just 9-years-old.  The abuse continued for three years before Ford was charged.

While the sex offender evaluation rated Ford as a 'low' risk for re-offending, Judge Jeff Davis says his actions and lack of responsibility suggest otherwise.

Ford was originally charged with 2 counts of sexual contact, but the state dropped one of his charges in exchange for his guilty plea.
