DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A judge has rejected the guilty plea of the former leader of a suburban Philadelphia youth sports organization charged with repeatedly raping a girl starting when she was 11.

The Bucks County Courier-Times (https://bit.ly/1plGNFJ) said 38-year-old Keith Peschen of Falls pleaded guilty Monday to numerous felony charges including child rape, involuntary deviate intercourse with a child and aggravated indecent assault.

The girl told police about numerous assaults but Peschen only admitted raping the girl once.

That prompted Judge Wallace Bateman to reject Peschen’s guilty plea. The case could now be headed to trial this week.

The former Levittown Lions Athletic Association president faces a mandatory minimum 10 to 20 years behind bars. If convicted on all the charges, he could be sentenced to more than 100 years.
