DIXON – A Dixon man has been sentenced to 4 years of probation, 180 days of jail time, and a $2,000 fine for sexually abusing a family member.

He pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in October; in exchange for the plea, the eight other charges were dropped. Delhotal was sentenced on March 24.
