DOVER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man convicted of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison.

A Strafford County Superior Court judge sentenced 56-year-old Faustino Brito on Tuesday to between five and 15 years behind bars. He will receive credit for time served.

Brio was found guilty in June of one count of aggravated felonious sexual assault. Authorities say the Somersworth man lured the girl into his house with the promise of a dollar and assaulted her in 2012.

Brito must register as a sex offender after leaving prison.
