UPDATE: Nelson Co Man Arrested On Multiple Felony Charges Including Rape, Child Porn Pleads Guilty to 8 Charges

UPDATE:57 year old Kenneth Spratt was set to appear in court Tuesday morning for his arraignment on 36 counts including child rape and possession of child porn.Instead, he pleaded guilty to eight of those charges.{} The judge sentenced him to 30 years in prison. Investigators have told us the charges involved three different girls,{}ages 8, 6 and 12 at the time of the acts.

Upon Spratt's release, he will be on supervised probation for 20 years; must reregister as a sex offender; and have no contact with the victims' family.{} Commonwealth's Attorney, Anthony Martin, proposed the plea agreement after getting the approval from the children's family; and considering Kenneth Spratt's age and the fact that there is no parole in Virginia, the 30 year active sentence was an appropriate resolution that would prevent the children from having to testify in court.
