PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island man charged with sexually molesting a young girl has been sent to prison for nine years, prosecutors said Monday.

Christopher Piloto, 37, of Central Falls, was sentenced last week after pleading no contest to a charge of first-degree child molestation, state Attorney General Peter Neronha said in a statement.

He was sentenced to 25 years behind bars with nine to serve and the balance suspended with probation. Piloto was also ordered to register as a sex offender and complete sex offender counseling.

Piloto in 2015 sexually assaulted the victim under the age of 14, who was known to him, at a residence in Central Falls, prosecutors said.

“The defendant here inflicted enormous harm upon the victim, and he deserves every year of his lengthy prison sentence,” Neronha said.
