A man has been sentenced to eight to 16 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl in New Hampshire.
The Portsmouth Herald reports 38-year-old James Nolan, formerly of Newmarket, was found guilty of two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault in December. He was sentenced Monday.
Nolan will have to register as a sex offender and undergo a counseling program.
Police said they were notified of the sexual assault in 2010. The girl told her mother, and police were notified after the girl was brought to the hospital.
The girl, who now lives out of state with her mother, attended the trial to testify against Nolan.
