LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A 29-year-old North Dakota man has been given 15 to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 5-year-old Nebraska girl.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Brian Groves, of Mayville, N.D., was arrested in August after he told Lincoln investigators what he'd done.

Groves later pleaded no contest and was convicted of sexual assault. He was sentenced on Tuesday.

A court affidavit says the girl was left in Groves' care for about six hours on June 26 at a home in Lincoln. The girl later told her mother about the sexual abuse, and the mother contacted police.
