SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island man charged with sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 14 on multiple occasions has been sent to prison for at least 30 years.

The state attorney general’s office says 41-year-old Myles Stevenson was sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest to six counts of first-degree child molestation.

The Tiverton man must serve 30 years of a 50-year sentence, with the remainder suspended with probation, and was also ordered to register as a sex offender and undergo counseling.

Authorities say Stevenson molested the girl multiple times at a home in South Kingstown between 2012 and 2018.
