GROVETON, TX (KTRE) - Prosecutors in Trinity County have reached a plea bargain agreement with an 18 year old man accused of sexually assaulting a child.

Eighteen year old Rikki Wright will serve 50 years in prison for three counts of sexual assault.  The father of an 8-year-old claimed he caught Wright in the act.  After an interview with the victim, authorities said more incidents were exposed.

Wright must serve half of his sentence before he's eligible for parole.  He also has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
