He was convicted of 1st and 2nd-degree criminal sexual conduct in September.

Bothun was accused of abusing the girl from November 2017 to February 2018, when he was formally charged. The girl - who was under the age of 13 at the time - told a police investigator some of the abuse took place while the two were taking baths together.
