Belfast Man to Prison for Sexually Assaulting Young Girl

BELFAST, Maine (WABI) - A Belfast man will spend a year-and-a-half in prison for raping a 13-year-old girl.

28-year-old Christopher Farrar pleaded guilty last week to gross sexual assault.

He was arrested in August after a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Investigators say they found an explicit photo of the girl sent to Farrah through Facebook.

The girl's social media profile said she was 16.

Police say Farrar and the girl both admitted to having sex.

Once Farrar is out of prison, he'll be on probation and can have no contact with children under 18 and has to undergo sex offender treatment.
