A 26-year-old Breese man has pleaded guilty to child molestation charges.
Gilberto Santiago Rodriguez accepted a plea agreement shortly before yesterday’s scheduled final pre-trial hearing.
In exchange for pleading guilty to one count of Class X felony predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13, Rodriguez was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Two additional counts were dropped. Rodriguez was first arrested in December 2012.
