WARWICK, R.I. -

The former owner of a Coventry day care center was sentenced to 75 years in prison for child molestation.

David Lyons, 68, was sentenced in Kent County Superior Court to serve 45 years in prison after being convicted in January on three counts of child molestation. He was also ordered to undergo counseling.

Lyons was accused of molesting three children. He was arrested in 2011 after an 11-year-old girl told her mother he had molested her.

Lyons ran the day care with his wife. It was closed down following an investigation by the state Department of Children, Youth and Families.
