A Watford City man convicted of sexually abusing two girls over a nine-year span has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.
Judge Daniel El-Dweek delivered the sentence Wednesday, June 8, for Lance Dwight Foreman, sentenced to 25 years with seven years suspended in a plea deal for two felony counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child.
Charges were filed in late December after Foreman was arrested Dec. 21.
Foreman, 60, must register as a sex offender for life and have no contact with his victims or their family. He also faces supervised probation for life upon release.
Foreman did receive credit for time served, totalling 170 days.
Court documents filed in December alleged Foreman had engaged in three or more sexual acts with a female under 15 on a weekly basis or every two weeks between 2004 and 2013.
Court documents also reported Foreman had engaged in three or more sexual acts with another female under 15 in the same time frame.
Assistant State’s Attorney Charles B. Neff, Jr. had no comment on the case.
