Grass Valley man pleads no contest to two molest charges

A Grass Valley man charged with multiple counts of sexually molesting a child has pleaded no contest to two counts in return for a stipulated 16-year sentence.

Roger Allen McGlothin, 54, had been charged with three counts of oral copulation with a child younger than 10, one count of continual sexual abuse of a child younger than 14 and three counts of committing a lewd act on a child. The incidents covered a time frame dating back to August 2009 through July 26, 2012, allegedly beginning when the victim was 7 years old.

McGlothin pleaded no contest in Nevada County Superior Court Friday to the two counts of committing a lewd act on a child, with allegations of substantial sexual conduct.

The plea agreement calls for 16 years in state prison, and from 10 to 20 years on post-release community supervision after his release. He can only receive 15 percent time credit for good behavior.

His sentencing was set for March 29.
