LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches man has pleaded guilty to having sexual intercourse with an underage girl.

As part of the plea deal Thursday, Coy Dakota Delacruz, 19, accepted a five-year prison sentence in District Judge Ed Klein's court on a charge of first-degree sexual assault of a child.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Delacruz invited the girl, who was under the age of 14, into a room and had sexual intercourse with her earlier in 2012.

A medical exam showed evidence that the girl had sex and an investigator with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office reviewed text messages which showed the victim and Delacruz had had sex.
