AUGUSTA, Maine — A 66-year-old Mount Vernon man has pleaded guilty to having unlawful sexual contact with a child.

Prosecutors say James Beane was sentenced Wednesday in Kennebec County Superior Court to serve two years of a 10-year prison term and 12 years of probation.

District Attorney Maeghan Maloney tells the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1pP9sTB ) the case was handled swiftly because Beane did not want to make the girl testify.

Court records show the victim was 4 when the offense occurred in April. Maloney described it as inappropriate touching.

As a condition of probation, Beane is barred from any contact with children under 12.

Beane, who had no prior criminal record, was also required to register as a lifetime sex offender.

Beane's lawyer had no comment.
