A Lyndon Station man was sentenced to six years in state prison after being convicted of first and second degree sexual assault of a child.

Daniel J. Coughlin, who turned 53 on April 13, was sentenced to two six-year terms, but the second term runs concurrent with the first count. Coughlin was also placed on 20 years probation for another first degree sexual assault of a child charge and 10 years each for two additional second degree charges.

Coughlin, who pleaded not guilty to all five counts, was convicted in December. Coughlin was convicted of sexually assaulting two boys who worked on his farm from 1989 to 1992. A previous trial in 2013 led to a mistrial when it was determined that the lead investigator couldn’t provide video recordings of interviews with alleged victims for both defense and prosecuting attorneys.
