Mantorville, MN (KROC-AM News) -  A North Mankato man has entered into a plea agreement with Dodge County prosecutors that calls for him to serve a prison sentence of a little over 15 1/2 years.

42-year-old Nicholas Daniel Larson has admitted to a first-degree criminal sexual conduct charge in exchange for the dismissal of three other counts of the same crime. He was accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a young girl beginning when she was 6 years old.

She also told investigators that Larson would set up a camera and take photos of her.

The former Dodge Center man is scheduled to be sentenced on July 19 and is currently jailed in Olmsted County on $250,000 conditional bail.
