An 82-year-old Stevensville man will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for repeatedly sexually assaulting a young girl.
Gary Gene Dowdle admitted guilt to three charges, including sexual assault and sexual abuse of children. Prosecutors say the girl reported to Colorado authorities that she was assaulted by Dowdle several times between the ages of 4 and 6.
At his sentencing hearing, Ravalli District Court Judge James Haynes followed the state's recommendation of a 100-year sentence in the Montana State Prison with no possibility for parole until he serves 25 years, when he'd be 107-years-old.
