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.
