FARGO — Judge Susan Bailey ordered a 25-year-old Fargo man Monday, Oct. 21, to serve 13 years in prison on charges of molesting a minor.
MacArthur Ryan Paulson, 25, pleaded guilty to two felony charges of gross sexual imposition in July in Cass County District Court.
Once out of prison, Paulson must serve five years of supervised probation. He received credit for having already spent 239 days in jail.
According to charging documents, the victim told authorities Paulson inappropriately touched him when they were at a Fargo hotel. The alleged offense occurred around August 2018.
Paulson told police he stayed with the victim's family at the hotel during the summer of 2018, according to charging documents.
