MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A man facing life in prison for allegedly raping a girl in Flaxton in 2013 has reached a plea deal with prosecutors.

KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1KZmpnn ) that 40-year-old Michael Hardaway was charged with Class AA felony gross sexual imposition, but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of Class B felony sexual imposition. That carries a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison.

Judge Gary Lee ordered a pre-sentence investigation that will include a sex offender evaluation.

Hardaway also pleaded guilty to endangering a child and was ordered to serve five years in prison in addition to whatever sentence he receives for the sexual imposition count.
