LUBBOCK, Texas — Jeffrey Hatton, 26, pleaded guilty Friday to aggravated sexual assault of a child.  He was originally indicted on five felony counts but four counts were dismissed as part of the deal.

Hatton will serve 25 years in prison.  He must also register as a sex offender.

In 2017, he was accused of both inappropriate touching and other forms of sexual abuse of a girl under the age of 14.
