AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A Brunswick man is heading to prison for sexually assaulting a girl under age 12 several years ago in Vienna.

The Kennebec Journal (https://bit.ly/2fpTZO5 ) reports that 26-year-old Patrick Patterson pleaded guilty Monday in Augusta to gross sexual assault. He was sentenced to 15 years behind bars and will have to register as a lifetime sexual offender.

Prosecutors say Patterson assaulted the girl five times between June 2011 and November 2012.

Patterson’s attorney says his client wants to take responsibility for his actions. Patterson apologized in court.
