According to court records, 18-year-old Kody Walter Roth of Bricelyn, Minn., is facing up to 50 years in prison.
The plea agreement calls for the state to recommend an indeterminate prison term not to exceed 25 years on each count to run consecutive to one another. The state will also agree to not recommend a mandatory minimum sentence.
The charges stem from the accusation Roth abused a 10-year-old child in Rake, Iowa, when he was around 15 years old. According to the plea agreement document, the abuse allegedly took place from 2019 and 2020. An interview with Roth and the alleged victim's Child Protective Services interview recollection of the incidents matched, according to the original affidavit.
Roth was originally charged with seven counts of second-degree sex abuse.
A sentencing hearing has been set for July 18. The court is not required to follow the sentencing recommendations filed in the plea agreement.

But the New York Times reports a mid-wedding chop is the latest trend in a lifetime of momentous haircuts. Buzz60’s Maria Mercedes Galuppo has the story.
