PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine’s highest court is upholding the convictions of a Rockport man in connection with his sexual assault of a young girl over a period of three years.

A jury convicted Erik Vultee of gross sexual assault, ten counts of unlawful sexual contact and other crimes last year. A judge sentenced him to 14 years in prison in August.

Vultee appealed, claiming the court made errors regarding evidence in the case.

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court on Tuesday ruled his arguments were “unpersuasive” and affirmed the convictions.
