The Rapid City Journal reports that under the terms of a plea bargain, two charges of first-degree rape of a child younger than 13 and a second sexual contact charge were dismissed against Michael Slaughter.
By pleading guilty to the sexual contact charge, Slaughter avoided a potential life sentence for the dismissed first-degree rape charges.
Court documents indicate the victim was 5 years old when she was assaulted by Slaughter in 2010.
Circuit Judge Wally Eklund scheduled Slaughter’s sentencing for August 20th.
