A Westville area man pleaded guilty Wednesday to engaging in sexual activity with a 9-year-old girl.
Ryan Osowski, 37, agreed in LaPorte Circuit Court to being found guilty on three counts of Class B felony child molesting.
The plea also calls for argued sentencing, which means he could receive anywhere from a six to 20 year sentence on each count. By pleading guilty, Osowski does not have to face the possibility of a 20 to 50 year sentence on each count had he been convicted at trial.
Osowski, during a hearing before Judge Tom Alevizos, admitted to taking part in sexual activity with the girl when she was 9 between April 1 and December 31 of 2009.
