A Ganado man who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a girl under the age of 12 has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Rex Damon Begay Sr. pleaded guilty last year to a charge of abusive sexual contact with a child under the age of 12.
The judge who sentenced Begay on Monday also required him to register as a sex offender after he is released from prison.
The 76-year-old Begay has acknowledged in court that he abused the girl during a two-year period ending in July 2009.
