DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) _ A 25-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting an 83-year-old woman in her Dickinson home has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Nick Jay Webster was sentenced Tuesday in Southwest District Court.
Webster was charged with three felonies after the March 10 incident: gross sexual imposition, burglary and interference with an emergency telephone call. He entered a conditional guilty plea to the charges last month.
Judge H. Patrick Weir says statements from the victim indicate that she suffers from breathing problems caused by crushed ribs and bruises from the attack. The judge says the victim also now is frightened when she hears male voices.
