BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A Centerton man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for raping a 9-year-old girl.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1NPqnha ) reports that 53-year-old Ronnie Warran pleaded guilty Monday to one count of rape as part of a plea agreement. He was arrested July 8.

Centerton police began their investigation after the girl said she was sexually abused by Warran. The girl was interviewed at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Benton County.

Warran will be required to register as a sex offender after his release and must complete a sex offender treatment program. Warran received 209 days of jail credit for the time he spent in the Benton County jail awaiting trial.
