37-year old Robert Lee Morris was sentenced to 60-years in prison Thursday as part of a plea agreement in connection with the rape of a 12-year old girl at his home in Colman, SD last year.

The plea deal charges him with one count of first degree rape with a sentence cap of 60 years. In return, five additional counts of first degree rape, six counts of sexual contact with a child younger than 13, and 46 counts of possession of child pornography were dismissed.

The judge told Morris that the sentence carries a mandatory minimum 15 years in prison before accepting the plea agreement.
