BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A Mountain Home man accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl has been sentenced to 17 years in prison.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1Byn9zj ) reports 32-year-old Waylon Lee Coker pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree sexual assault. According to court documents, the victim’s mother reported to a Benton County sheriff’s deputy that Coker had given the girl alcohol and sexually assaulted her after she passed out.

A probable cause document says the girl told the Children’s Advocacy Center of Benton County that Coker had given her a cup of cocoa that tasted more like alcohol.

Coker must serve at least four years in prison before he is eligible for parole. He will be required to register as a sex offender and must pay $1,670 in court costs.
