Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Duluth man Robert Thomas Milbridge-Scott was sentenced to 7.5 years behind bars for a charge of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 13.
Milbridge-Scott, 32, will spend one year of his sentence at either the Northeast Regional Correction Center or the St. Louis County Jail. The rest of his sentence has been stayed, providing Milbridge-Scott serves 10 years of probation.
Milbridge-Scott must also adhere to the following conditions: complete sex offender treatment, register as a sex offender, complete outpatient treatment, have no unsupervised contact with females minors, no contact with the victim, and no possession of pornography, or consumption of alcohol or drugs, among other conditions.
Back in April, Milbridge-Scott pleaded guilty to 1st degree criminal sexual conduct. On June 1st, Milbridge-Scott amended his guilty plea to 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct with someone of a significant relationship who was under 16.
According to the criminal complaint, Milbridge–Scott engaged in sexual contact with a girl under the age of 13, which included penetration.
The complaint says he then prayed with the child, after the assault, for something like that to never happen again.
Milbridge–Scott and his wife received media attention back in 2008, when the couple adopted eight children from Utah, and the community helped revamp their home for their new family.
