MINOT, N.D. — A man has been sentenced to serve three years in prison for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old runaway girl while working as a hotel clerk in Minot.

Authorities say 24-year-old Mohammed Siddiqui offered to let the girl stay in a vacant room and then assaulted her when she came to the Astoria Hotel on Oct. 31, 2016, to use the internet after running away from the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch.

The Minot Daily News reports Siddiqui eventually pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of sexual imposition. He was sentenced Friday, and given credit for more than a year he has already served behind bars.
