A 19-year-old man from Cove pleaded guilty Monday to engaging in unlawful sexual activity with a minor, a third-degree felony.

Erick Durrant was originally charged in 1st District Court last December with sodomy on a child, a first-degree felony, and enticing a minor by internet or text, a second-degree felony.

Durrant agreed to a plea deal offered by the Cache County Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutor Dane Murray said the victim is at least four years younger than Durrant.

Sentencing is currently scheduled for Aug. 19.
