Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - An Eyota man is scheduled to be sentenced in March for sexually assaulting a young girl.

37-year-old Michael Allen Smith today entered guilty pleas to first-degree criminal sexual conduct and a child pornography charge through a plea agreement with Olmsted County prosecutors that resulted in the dismissal of a second-degree criminal sexual conduct charge. Smith was charged last summer after an investigation by the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.

A spokesman says investigators were contacted by the mother of the victim who discovered evidence of the sexual abuse on Smith's phone. He had been scheduled to stand trial on the charges next week.
