Stanislaus judge sentences man to six years for sexual abuse

A judge has sentenced a 34-year-old man to six years in prison for sexually abusing his friend's daughter, the Stanislaus County district attorney's office reported.

Stanislaus County Superior Court Judge Ricardo Córdova sentenced Tanner Joseph Polk on Aug. 12 shortly after the defendant pleaded no contest to continuous sexual abuse of a child younger than 14.

Deputy District Attorney Beth O'Hara Owen, who prosecuted the case, said the abuse started in January 2009 when the girl was 11 and ended in November 2011 when she was 13.
