PALMYRA, Maine (WABI) - A Palmyra man who sexually assaulted a nine-year-old girl has been sentence to eight years in prison.
59-year-old David Freeman pleaded guilty last week to gross sexual assault. Charges of unlawful sexual contact were dismissed.
Police confronted Freeman two years ago about allegations he abused the girl, a relative of a girlfriend.
Then Freeman took off out of state.
Detectives looked for Freeman for about a year and found him last summer in Pennsylvania.
