ABERDEEN (AP) -- An Aberdeen man who once faced nearly two dozen felony sex crime counts has been sentenced to serve 15 years in prison.

Forty-three-year-old Richard Mette pleaded guilty in March to raping a child younger than 10, and prosecutors dismissed all other charges. The 15-year sentence was part of the plea agreement, and a judge on Tuesday approved it.

Mette will have to serve at least half of the sentence before being eligible for parole. He was given credit for more than a year he already has served.
