LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln man has been sentenced to 40-60 years in prison after pleading no contest to raping and molesting a 4-year-old girl at a day care.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1BP7hoc ) 27-year-old Albert Decoteau was sentenced Wednesday. He entered the plea in July to a first-degree sexual assault of a child charge.

Authorities say he assaulted the girl in September 2013 at an unlicensed day care he ran with his fiancee in their apartment. He was arrested a few days later after the girl was taken to the emergency room.

Decoteau will get credit for 349 days spent in jail. He could be eligible for parole in 17 ½ years. He’ll have to register as a sex offender upon release.
