ALBERT LEA, Minn. – Over two years after he was arrested, a Wisconsin man is sentenced for sexually abusing a young girl in Freeborn County.

Joel Michael Radjenovich, 72 of Somerset, WI, will spend 357 days in the Freeborn County Jail, followed by 25 years of supervised probation. He must also register as a predatory offender.

Radjenovich was arrested in June 2016 and charged with eight counts of criminal sexual conduct. Law enforcement accused him of having sexual contact with a 10-year-old girl when he lived in Clarks Grove. Authorities say the abuse continued for six years.

In February 2018, Radjenovich entered an Alford plea to one count of 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct. He was sentenced Monday and the remaining charges were dismissed.
