HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas man who called police last year to report committing a sexual act on a 3-month-old child has now pleaded guilty to the crime.
The Hutchinson News reports that 25-year-old Michael Sherman faces up to life in prison following the plea Monday to aggravated criminal sodomy of a child. He could receive parole after 25 years, under Kansas law.
Sherman's lawyer and Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder both say there was no plea agreement in the case. Sherman had been scheduled to go on trial Tuesday.
Sherman was arrested at his Hutchinson home last December after reporting to police what he had done.
Hutchinson Police Detective Scott Carlton says it's unusual for a suspect to report himself and then plead guilty.
