ELDORA, Iowa – A Hardin County man found guilty of sexually abusing a child has been ordered to pay $10 million to the girl and her mother.

Dean Edward Hilpipre, 62 of Alden, pleaded guilty to lascivious acts with a child for abusing the girl and received five years of probation In February 2018.

Between his plea and his sentencing, Hilpipre won a $100,000 Iowa Lottery prize.

The girl’s mother filed a civil lawsuit against Hilpipre in March 2018.
