CUDAHY - A man from Cudahy has been sentenced for sexually assaulting a nine-year-old girl.

Thurston Faulkner III was out of lockup and on extended supervision for a separate child abuse conviction when the new abuse happened. 

Prosecutors say Faulkner inappropriately touched the girl and showed her porn movies while they were at her relative's house in 2010.

The Racine Journal Times reports the abuse happened more than once. 

The judge sentenced Faulkner to 15 years behind bars, saying, "this type of behavior I cannot justify or find any excuse for."
