AUSTIN, Minn. – Years of sexually abusing a child is sending a man to prison for years.

Ruben Montoya Carbajal, 40 of Austin, was sentenced Thursday to 14 years and four months behind bars, with credit for 290 days already served. He was found guilty of two counts of 1st and two counts of 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct after a two-day trial.
