AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A Maine man has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a young girl over an eight-year period.
Richard Libby of Windsor has pleaded guilty to multiple counts of gross sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact.
The 48-year-old Libby had been scheduled for a trial this week.
The Kennebec Journal reports the assaults happened from 2001 to 2009 with the same girl. She was under 12 and then later 14 when the offenses occurred.
