A Rapid City man has admitted to sexually assaulting a 4-year-old boy at a local church.
In a deal with the state, 36-year-old Michael Slaughter plead guilty Wednesday to one count of sexual contact. In exchange for his admission, the state dropped two first-degree rape charges.
Because the victim in the case is so young, Slaughter will spend at least 10 years in prison.
In addition to this charge, Slaughter also has an open case in Illinois for aggravated child abuse.
He will be sentenced on his charges in Pennington County next month.
