FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) -- A Connecticut man has been sentenced to three years in prison for having sexual contact with a child in 2008 while he lived in Maine.
    
David Rhoades, of Taftville, Conn., was sentenced Monday in Franklin County Superior Court to serve three years of a 10-year sentence and 12 years of probation after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual contact with a child under 12 years old.
    
Prosecutors say the 46-year-old Rhoades touched a 4-year-old girl he was caring for when he lived in Eustis.
    
His lawyer said he pleaded guilty so the child would not have to go through a trial.
    
Rhoades apologized in court and said alcohol and medication were involved.
    
Prosecutors say the victim and her family agreed to the sentence.
