Tony Haglund , Former SD pastor convicted of child abuse gets 3 years

CANTON, S.D. (AP) — A former South Dakota pastor who authorities accused of having sex with a teenager has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Fifty-year-old Tony Haglund earlier pleaded guilty to one count of child abuse. The Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/1Go9j5g ) reports Haglund was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine or up to that amount in restitution to the family of his victim.
Haglund was indicted last year on three counts of sexual penetration by a psychotherapist, sexual contact with a child under 16 and sexual contact by a psychotherapist. He was arrested on October 2014 in Florida, where he worked as a real estate agent.
Authorities say the contact with a then-15-year-old girl occurred between January 2011 and December 2013. He was a pastor at Canton Lutheran Church for part of that time.
