PARIS, Maine — A Norway man pleaded no contest in a 2010 sexual abuse case that has been in courts for nearly two years. He will serve 120 days.

Timothy Turner, 46, of Norway pleaded Friday in Oxford County Superior Court to sexual abuse of a minor and aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs. A gross sexual assault charge was dismissed.

Assistant District Attorney Richard Beauchesne said that in May 2010 Turner gave a 15-year-old girl marijuana and alcohol, then had sex with her.

He was sentenced to five years with all but 120 days suspended, followed by two years of probation. He’ll spend 10 years on the sex offender registry and is to have no contact with the victim or any contact with children under 16 years except for immediate family. His sentence begins Aug. 10.
