A federal judge Monday in Minneapolis sentenced Dean Earl Wilkens, Red Lake, Minn., to 30 years in prison for sexually abusing two girls over several years on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

According to the FBI office in Minneapolis, Wilkens, 60, was convicted July 24 of four counts of aggravated sexual abuse of two girls from December 2008 to December 2011 on the reservation.

A year ago, the FBI learned of the abuse when one of the victims told a school official about it.
