A Grand Forks man is sentenced to 60 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl multiple times over the span of one year.

Justin Yarbro maintained his claim of innocence at Monday's sentencing. Regardless, State District Judge Debbie Kleven explained that he could never repair the damage he did and said Yarbro would probably do it again if free.

Yarbro was charged in February of 2012 of continuous sexual abuse of a minor younger than 15. He's been in jail ever since.
