Sioux Falls man gets 70 years for raping girl, 6
SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A Sioux Falls man is going to prison on a 70-year term for raping a 6-year-old girl.
A judge sentenced 30-year-old Christopher George Hartford Monday. He pleaded guilty in June to two counts of first-degree rape.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Hartford knows the girl and she told a classmate that he was giving sex with her.
Police say the contact happened multiple times.
Prosecutors say the girl reported the abuse in January while at school.
