Senior citizen gets prison for sex with teen

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A 62-year-old Martin man has been sentenced to five years in prison for having a sex with a 15-year-old girl more than 50 times in Bennett County in 2010 and 2011.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says that Chief Judge Jeffrey Viken sentenced Edwin Johnson in federal court for sexual abuse of a minor. Johnson was indicted by a federal grand jury in November and pleaded guilty in April.

He was turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.

The case was investigated by the Martin Police Department, the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
