Northwest Iowan gets prison for sex abuse of girl

ORANGE CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 46-year-old northwest Iowa man has been given 20 years in prison for having sexual contact with a girl.

Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister says Todd Bonestroo, of Hull, was sentenced on Monday. Bonestroo was convicted of sexual abuse and lascivious acts with a child.

Bonestroo was arrested after a father contacted the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office on July 31 to report that he suspected his 11-year-old daughter may have been sexually abused by Bonestroo. McAllister says the girl had told her parents that Bonestroo had groped her and exposed himself to her on at least two occasions three years earlier.
