SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A judge has sentenced a 57-year-old Valley Springs man to 60 years in prison after he was found guilty of raping a 6-year-old girl.

KELO television reports that Judge Bradley Zell sentenced Kevin Buchholtz to 67 years in prison with seven of those years suspended.

Buchholtz was convicted of two counts of first-degree rape, one count of sexual contact with a child and one count of indecent exposure involving a child by a jury during a weeklong trial in August.

Authorities say the girl said in a recorded interview that Buchholtz fondled her in June 2011 while she was helping him clean the garage and inside his bedroom.
