FORT MADISON, Iowa (AP) - A 69-year-old Fort Madison man has made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual abuse and one of lascivious acts with a child.

The Fort Madison Daily Democrat says (https://bit.ly/1iBrTuD ) Roger Mendez made the pleas on Friday. Prosecutor Clinton Boddicker told Judge John Linn that Mendez also agreed to plead guilty later to three misdemeanors.

Police investigator David Doyle says that following Mendez’s arrest in January, several other people came forward with accusations. Doyle says Mendez had victimized seven males, ages 7 to 20.

Doyle says the oldest accuser had made allegations years ago, but police couldn’t develop enough evidence for charges then.
