LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former state trooper who was accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl has entered a guilty plea to lesser charges.

Media report that Stratford Young originally was charged with rape and sodomy, but pleaded guilty on Thursday to three counts of unlawful transaction with a minor. The prosecutor is recommending a sentence of two years.

An indictment said the allegations stem from alleged encounters in 2013.

Final sentencing was set for November.
