GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A Fruita man will spend five years in community corrections and 10 years to life on probation for sexually assaulting a young girl.

According to court records, 40-year-old Robert Fortier was sentenced under a plea agreement Friday morning.

When Fortier was 39 he had sex with the victim when she was 14 and again when she was 15. He also gave her alcohol and took photos and videos of them engaging in explicit acts.

Under his plea agreement Fortier must also complete intensive sex-offender treatment.

He’ll be held at the Mesa County Jail until a bed opens up in community corrections.
