A 29-year-old Dilworth man was sentenced to more than three years in prison after admittedly molesting a child under the age of 13.

Billy Joe Ortiz pleaded guilty to a second-degree charge of criminal sexual conduct on April 26, one of three molestation charges he faced. The two other charges were dismissed when he pleaded guilty.
