Local man enters into felony plea

Monday, November 21, 2005

A year after being charged, a Clay City man accused of child molesting has admitted to the crime.

Justin R. Sutton, 22, entered into a plea agreement in the Clay County Superior Court on Monday. Sutton withdrew his prior plea of not guilty and entered the plea of guilty to an offense of child molesting, a class C felony. Sutton will be sentenced on Monday, Dec. 12 at 9 a.m.

According to Superior Court documents, "(Sutton) will be sentenced to Indiana Department of Corrections for 4 years, with 1 year suspended, leaving 3 years to serve with good time credit, if earned, and credit for time previously served."

In September 2004, Sutton was arrested for performing or submitting to sexual intercourse with a juvenile female under the age of 14. At the time the juvenile was 12 years old.
