Man who molested 5-year-old girl sentenced to 25-50 years in prison


ROCHESTER — A Maine man who molested a young girl in Rochester was sentenced to twenty-five to fifty years in prison today.

Christopher Lunny, 44, pleaded guilty to five counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. He started abusing the girl when she was just five years old.

The girl's mother and grandmother addressed the court.

Prosecutor Alysia Cassotis said Lunny's actions violated all social norms.

Ten to thirty years in prison were suspended.

Lunny is expected to appear in court again Monday on bail jumping charges. He tried to flee the country last week.
