MANCHESTER - A 39-year-old Windham man got a minimum 25-year state prison term for sexually assaulting a young girl over a period of more than 10 years.
Julian Azibert was sentenced Friday in Hillsborough County Superior Court North.
Prosecutors said Azibert knew the victim and that the assaults started when the girl was 7.
According to court documents, some of the assaults took place in the restroom of the Mall of New Hampshire and at the YMCA, both in Manchester.
The victim and her mother gave statements in court Friday prior to Azibert's sentencing. His father pleaded for leniency.
County prosecutors had asked the judge for a 25-year sentence.
Under the terms, Azibert must also register for life as a sex offender.
Azibert's indictment last fall revealed a timeline of escalating sexual contact and described Azibert as an "authority figure" to the victim.
Last month, Azibert was convicted of all 11 felony charges against him.
Manchester Police Lt. Brian O'Keefe had said the victim, then 17, first came forward on Nov. 22, 2015, to provide the information leading to Azibert's arrest and indictment.
Azibert's address in Windham where his parents live had been a popular spot for Democratic Party fundraising events.
On July 16, 2016, just prior to becoming the first female presidential nominee of a major political party, Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd of several hundred activists at this home at 87 Lowell Road.
