Robert Wayne Reaves, 43, pleaded guilty on Monday to third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, according to the 15th Circuit Solicitor’s Office.

Circuit Court Judge Benajmin Culbertson sentenced him to the maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.

Reaves must also register as a sex offender once he is released from custody and be on a GPS monitor, officials said.

“The victim in this matter was extremely brave and strong,” Smith said.
