(AP/KAKE)-- A 31-year-old South Hutchinson man is facing a possible life sentence after pleading guilty to raping a 9-year-old girl.
Jacob Ridley on Thursday also pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sodomy of a child. Three charges were dropped as part of a plea agreement.
Police say the crime happened April 30. Ridley was arrested May 25 while he was jailed in Newkirk, Okla.
A Reno County judge ordered that Ridley undergo a mental evaluation at Larned State Hospital before he is sentenced.
