Man given 3 years in prison in sex case

As his victim watched from the front row of the courtroom, Abdikadir D. Talaso, 43, was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison and seven years post-release supervision for having sexual intercourse with the girl when she was 15 years old.

Talaso originally was charged with rape and with forcible sexual abuse for the assault, which reportedly took place in September 2014. He was arrested in June 2015 and pleaded guilty to the lesser charge, a class D felony, in August before State Supreme Court Justice John L. Michalski.

In pronouncing sentence, the judge also issued a 10-year order of protection for the victim.
