A 36-year-old Clovis man was sentenced Thursday to 18 years in prison for molesting a 10-year-old child.

Nick Trujillo was found guilty May 1 of criminal sexual contact with a minor, according to a release from the district attorney’s office.

In January 2008, a 10-year-old girl told her aunt and father that her mother’s boyfriend had made her touch him inappropriately, the release said.

Trujillo must serve five years probation following his release and register as a sex offender.
