SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A 53-year-old Garretson man accused of sexually abusing a female over the course of 14 years has been sentenced to 75 years in prison.

Ronald Neels was convicted in July on rape and other charges. Authorities say he abused the victim from when she was 9 years old until she was 22. Judge Larry Long called it one of the worst cases of abuse he's seen.

The victim finally told a co-worker about the abuse in October 2014, and the co-worker called authorities.
