AUBURN, Maine (AP) _ A Lisbon mas has been sentenced to 3-and-a-half years in jail after pleading guilty to sex crimes involving a relative.

James Davis was sentenced this month after pleading guilty in Androscoggin Superior Court to two counts of sexual abuse of a minor. According to court documents, nine counts of gross sexual assault contained in the indictment were dismissed because Davis pleaded guilty.
