PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Providence man has been sentenced to serve 35 years in prison for child molestation.

The attorney general's office says 38-year-old Oscar Muralles was sentenced Thursday.

He was found guilty by a jury in February of molesting a boy multiple times when he was 8 and 9 years old.

Muralles was also ordered to have no contact with the victim or any child under age 14. He must also undergo sex offender counseling when he is released, and register as a sex offender.
