UPDATE: Man Facing Prison Time for Sexually Assaulting Little Girl in Cheboygan County

A Gaylord man will spend at least 6 and a half years in prison for raping a little girl in Cheboygan County.

A judge sentenced Peter Nowak today for the sex crimes case that originated in Tuscarora Township in April.

Nowak pleaded no contest last month to sexually assaulting the girl, which means he didn't admit guilt but was willing to accept the punishment.

Investigators say the sexual assault happened while Nowak was staying with the 7-year-old's parents.
