Abuse Sentence

A Volga man has been sentenced to ten years in prison in connection with the sexual abuse of a teen-age girl. 61-year old Charles Lockard was charged with sexually abusing a 14-year old girl earlier this year. Lockard admitted to abusing the girl at his residence in Volga and in Wadena and admitted knowing the girls age. The family of the girl found sexual conversations between the two on social media. Lockard pleaded guilty to third-degree sexual abuse in Fayette County Court, after pleading guilty in Clayton County last month on a similar charge. The two 10-year prison terms will run concurrently.
