WAILUKU>> A judge has sentenced a Maui man to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting a girl over a five-year period.

The Maui News says 38-year-old Eddie Garcia of Kihei pleaded no contest last week to the continuous sexual assault of a child under the age of 14. The abuse occurred between February 2005 and February 2010, as well as on Aug. 19, 2010.

Second Circuit Judge Richard Bissen described Garcia as an "egotistical manipulator" and the worst he's encountered in more than 25 years in the court system.

Before his sentencing, Garcia tried unsuccessfully to withdraw his no-contest pleas in the case.

His attorney, Chris Dunn, says Garcia plans to appeal.
