HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Windsor Locks man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl and sent sexually explicit messages to a teenage boy has been sentenced to nearly eight years in prison.

Andrew Cotton was also sentenced Thursday to 10 years of special parole.

The Hartford Courant (https://cour.at/2bleyXf ) reports that the 26-year-old Cotton pleaded guilty in June to second-degree sexual assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.

Prosecutors called Cotton a controlling, manipulative, narcissistic man with violent tendencies who is unable to accept responsibility for his crimes and directs blame to others.

Authorities said previously the girl was a family friend and the sexual contact occurred when she was 14 and 15.

The 14-year-old male victim was described as “lower functioning” and all contact was via the Internet.
