A Rochester man convicted Aug. 19 of molesting a pre-teen girl was handed a 40-year prison term Monday by Fulton Circuit Judge Chris Lee.

Frank J. Fugate Jr.’s past criminal offense and the fact he was in a position of care, custody or control of his victim, were considered aggravating circumstances, Lee says in his sentencing order. He found no mitigating factors to consider.
