MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Prosecutors in suburban Atlanta say a North Carolina man has been sentenced on child molestation charges.

Cobb County District Attorney’s spokeswoman Kim Isaza said Monday that 60-year-old Rickey Bernard Reid of Charlotte, North Carolina was sentenced to 20 years for molesting a then 9-year-old girl. Isaza says Reid must serve 15 years of his sentence in confinement and will be on probation for the remaining five.

Prosecutors say Reid molested the girl at her home nearly two years ago. Isaza says after Reid fondled the girl, she told him she needed to go downstairs to get something to drink. She instead went downstairs, woke her mother up and told her what happened.

Isaza says police were called immediately and the girl was taken for an interview and medical exam.
