first_imgMANLY — A Britt man accused of sexual abuse has pleaded guilty in the case. 22-year-old Devonta Hinton was accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in the early morning hours of July 30th of last year. Manly police say in a criminal complaint that an officer saw video evidence of a sexual act on a cell phone that the girl owned. Police say that Hinton told them they were both high on marijuana at the time and that it was not the first time they had gotten together to have sex. An officer says the girl admitted that she and Hinton had sex a few days earlier. As part of a plea agreement, Hinton pleaded guilty earlier this week to one count of third-degree sexual abuse, a Class C felony punishable by up to ten years in prison. Hinton is scheduled to be sentenced on July 6th.last_img read more
