Although a rural Brazil man recently pled guilty in Clay Circuit Court to charges of a sexual relationship with a Terre Haute juvenile in late 2007, he still faces two more charges in Vigo County in the same case.

In December 2008, Aristin A. Losey, 23, was arrested amid sexual misconduct allegations of having a relationship with a 15-year-old juvenile from November-December in 2007, with alleged multiple incidents occurring in Clay and Vigo counties. The prosecutor's offices in both counties filed two counts of class B felony charges of sexual misconduct with a minor.

On Monday, Losey, along with defense attorney Geoffrey Creason, entered into a negotiated plea agreement with the Clay County Prosecutor's Office during court proceedings in Clay Circuit Court.

Appearing before Circuit Judge Joseph Trout, Losey agreed to provide factual testimony of his guilt on one count of a lesser (included) class C felony charge of sexual misconduct with a minor in exchange the prosecutor's office would drop the remaining charge.

Accepting the terms of the plea agreement, Trout entered a judgment of conviction and sentenced Losey to the Indiana Department of Correction for the maximum amount in the agreement, six years, with four years to be executed and two suspended.

Trout credited Losey with 527 days previously served in the matter and allowed good time credit, if earned.

Upon release, Losey would be placed on formal probation for one year and ordered to obey the terms of his release.

Meanwhile, Losey was transported to the Vigo County Jail to appear with defense attorney James B Organ for further court proceedings in Vigo County Circuit Court-Division 3 Monday afternoon.

Although a jury trial was scheduled in the matter in June, according to court documents at the Vigo County Courthouse, calendar congestion has caused the trial date to be continued and it has not been rescheduled at this time.

Once court proceedings were completed, Losey was returned to the custody of the Clay County Sheriff's Department.
