Ada sex offender given jail time, probationMOORHEAD – A 25-year-old Ada man who pleaded guilty to having sex with a 15-year-old Moorhead girl has been sentenced to jail time and 15 years of supervised probation, the prosecuting attorney on the case said.
Randall Ray Pallum Jr. was sentenced Monday to two years in prison, stayed by his probation time, and 180 days in jail, Assistant Clay County Attorney Pamela Harris said.
Pallum also was given a $1,000 fine. He pleaded guilty last month to the third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge, a felony.
Court records show that Pallum already was a registered sex offender in Minnesota when he had sex with the Moorhead girl in her home in June 2010. The victim told police Pallum was 22 at the time, the criminal complaint states.
Pallum was required to register as a sex offender in December 2008 after he pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct, a gross misdemeanor. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years of unsupervised probation.
