TWIN FALLS – A former Twin Falls police officer has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for sexually abusing young girls.
The Times-News reports William Jansen was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty in March to two counts of sexual abuse of a child under 16.
Jansen will serve at least two years in prison for each count, but his sentences will run concurrently.
A teenager had told police last year that Jansen had sexually abused her about a decade ago when she was between the ages of 7 and 9. Allegations also surfaced from two other girls.
Jansen apologized to the victims and their families in court, saying he’s “trying to make things right at this point.”
