GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - A 71-year-old Grand Forks man was in court Tuesday on two felony counts of gross sexual imposition.

Jack Duane Oatman is accused of sexual contact with an adult female while she was sleeping at his home at 1326 South 19th Street in December of 2011.

The second count stems from incidents with another girl in the 1980s when she was between 7 and 11 years old. Oatman is accused of sexual contact with her both when she was awake and while sleeping.

According to court documents, Oatman admitted to the activity.

Bond is set at $5,000 for each charge.

The most recent allegation is a Class A felony, punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The other count is a Class AA felony, punishable by life in prison without parole.

Oatman will be in court on June 28.
