Mitchell man gets 20 years in prison for sex with teen; 2nd suspect in case to stand trial


MITCHELL, South Dakota — A 42-year-old Mitchell man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for having sex with a teenage girl.

The Daily Republic reports (http://bit.ly/1XvJlz8 ) that Larry Unruh was ordered to serve five years in prison for each of two counts of sexual contact with a child under 16 and two counts of fourth-degree rape.

Authorities say Unruh had sex with a 13- or 14-year-old girl in Plankinton in 2010.

A Plankinton man charged in the case, 42-year-old Christian Thomas, has pleaded not guilty to similar charges. He's scheduled to stand trial in January.
