A Town of Lockport man who molested a young girl for four years will not be sent to state prison after his victim insisted so on Wednesday in State Supreme Court.

30-year-old Matthew Bald will go to Niagara County jail for six months, but the girl he molested, who's now 13 years old, had strong opinions about the case, according to an assistant district attorne.

He pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual abuse.

If Bald violates any of his probation, he could be resentenced to as many as seven years in a state penetentiary.
