A man who pretended to be an American Indian "medicine man" so that he could sexually abuse an American Indian minor was sentenced to life in prison.

Described by a federal prosecutor as "a wolf in sheep's clothing" during his trial, Carl Ortner, 57, of Quapaw, Okla. was convicted in May of sexually abusing a Native American female child and of illegally possessing eagle parts.

U.S. District Judge John F. Heil III sentenced Ortner to life in federal prison and ordered him to pay a $100,000 fine.
