A Grand Forks man has been accused of sexually abusing a young child for several months.

Jeffrey Scott Krogstad, 51, of Grand Forks, was arrested Sunday on a Class AA felony of gross sexual imposition, which carries a maximum of life in prison without parole.

Court documents allege Krogstad sexually abused a child less than 10 years old multiple times between February and July this year. Krogstad would take the child he knew to a location away from her home and then sexually assault her, according to court documents.

The alleged abuse took place within the city limits of Grand Forks and near or within the city of Manvel, N.D. The documents also claim the abuse took place in a vehicle registered to Krogstad.

Krogstad made his initial appearance in court Monday. Court records show his next court date is scheduled for Aug. 27.
