FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — A 35-year-old Fort Dodge man is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 16 for sexually abusing a child.
Christopher Edwards pleaded guilty on Monday in Webster County District Court to three counts of third-degree sexual abuse. Prosecutors lowered the original charge in exchange for Edwards' pleas.
Edwards admitted to sexually assaulting a girl described in court documents as being younger than 12.
Edwards faces up to 30 years in prison. He'll also have to register as a sex offender.
