Man sentenced for sexually assaulting 13-year-old girl

A Minto-area man who admitted to sexually assaulting a young girl will spend three-and-a-half years behind bars.

The CBC reports that Brandon Patrick Donelan of Hardwood Ridge will also spend 20 years on the sex offender registry.

Court heard the 22-year-old showed up at a party with liquor and drugs in August 2015 and had unprotected sex with an intoxicated 13-year-old.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued after Donelan failed to show up for his original sentencing date in February, but he turned himself in in mid-September.
