    Authorities say a 56-year-old Rhode Island man is going to prison for 15 years after pleading guilty to molesting a 4-year-old girl.

    The Providence Journal reports
    that Robert Martin, of Pawtucket, pleaded guilty to second-degree child molestation under a plea deal on Friday in Superior Court.

    Martin is prohibited from contacting the victim, who is related to him. He must also take sex offender counseling and register as a sex offender upon his release.

    Pawtucket Police investigated in March 2014 after the girl told her mother about the abuse.
