Central Falls man gets 9 years in prison for molesting girl

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 that 37-year-old Christopher Piloto, of Central Falls, was sentenced last week after pleading no contest to a charge of first-degree child molestation.

He was sentenced to 25 years behind bars with nine to serve and the balance suspended with probation.

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