A Cottonwood man accused of sexually abusing and impregnating a 15-year-old relative was sentenced to 54 years in prison Tuesday.
Gordon Charles Grissom was previously convicted of sexually abusing a now 17-year old family member over a four year period, and during Tuesday’s hearing he told the court he wishes he could marry the victim and take care of their child.
According to the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office, Grissom admitted to having sex with the girl more than 50 times.
Grissom will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
