FARGO -- A Spirit Lake man was sentenced to 40 years in prison Monday in Fargo federal court for sexually abusing a child.

A jury found Jade Shilo Oldrock, 42, of Fort Totten, N.D., guilty of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, commission of a federal sex offense by a registered sex offender and failure to register as a sex offender on July 17.

Judge Ralph Erickson sentenced Oldrock to 30 years in prison for the aggravated sexual abuse and 10 years on the commission charge. Those sentences will be served consecutively.

Oldrock also was sentenced to 10 years of supervised release on each of the charges with special conditions, including undergoing a chemical dependency treatment program and psychological counseling, registering as a state sex offender, having no contact with anyone under the age of 18 and not having any contact with the victim.

In May 2014, Oldrock was living temporarily at the home of the victim. The victim, who was less than 12 years old, testified at trial that she woke up when Oldrock began performing a sexual act on her while she was asleep after Oldrock had come back from a night of drinking.

Oldrock filed a motion in September to be acquitted of the sexual abuse and commission charges and to receive a new trial based mainly on the argument there was insufficient evidence to convict him. Erickson denied that motion.

At the sentencing, Erickson recommended Oldrock be able to serve his sentence at a medical center to address deteriorating health issues related to diabetes.

Oldrock was previously convicted of sexual abuse of a minor in 1998.
