20-year sentence for sex offender in Minot

MINOT, N.D. - A judge has ordered a Minot man who pleaded guilty to child sex crime charges to serve just under 19 years behind bars.

Police arrested 32-year-old Timothy Sprenger last October.

Authorities in Georgia informed Minot Police they had found pages of a diary, where Sprenger detailed his crimes.

The crimes would have occurred in Minot.

The judge sentenced him to 20 years on the continuous abuse charge, with credit for time served.

He'll also have to serve ten years of probation and register as a sex offender.
