FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A federal judge tacked on nine years of prison time for a Grand Forks man already sentenced to 30 years for what a state judge called "probably the most heinous child abuse case" he's seen.

Timothy Olson of Grand Forks was sentenced in July 2009 to serve three decades in prison for molesting a young girl over a period of seven years. Olson had pleaded guilty to felony sexual abuse of a child.

A federal charge of possession of material involving the sexual exploitation of minors was filed after the state case. Olson pleaded guilty in November 2010 to possessing images and video files depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson ordered Olson to serve nine years at the end of his state sentence.
