FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) _ A 53-year-old Maine man is going to prison for five years for sexually assaulting a child several years ago.

David Grover of Jay was sentenced Thursday in Franklin County Superior Court to a 10-year sentence, with five years suspended.

Grover pleaded guilty Monday to gross sexual assault involving a girl between the ages of 9 and 15.

The Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/14lvroW ) reported that Justice Michaela Murphy said she rejected other plea-agreement offers but accepted this one because the victim felt it was a just sentence.
