DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A man convicted of two felonies for molesting a young girl has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

The Dickenson Press reports that Vicente Chacano (vih-CEN'-tay shah-CAN'-oh) was sentenced Friday. He was convicted in February of molesting a single victim who was younger than 15.

Chacano at the trial pointed a 9mm pistol at assistant attorney general Jonathan Byers who had prosecuted the case but was subdued by Byers and Adams County Sheriff Eugene Molbert.

Prosecutors filed 14 attempted murder charges in late May. Chacano's preliminary hearing has not yet been scheduled.
