In the plea agreement, a sentence of 13 years was recommended. If sentenced to the maximum time, he could receive up to 97 years in prison.
A victim advocate told Judge Jeannine Pratt that the victim and her guardian knew of the hearing and the plea deal. They were not in court Wednesday.

Pratt ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set sentencing March 26.
Walker, who cried at times during the hearing, said he would prefer to be sentenced Wednesday so he could get out of the county jail and back in prison.
“I don’t know anything about you,” Pratt said of the purpose of the pre-sentence report.
Walker was ordered to comply with preparing the report.
Walker, then 20 and living in Troy, was convicted of murder in the October 1981 death of Robyn Clawson, whose body was found in a field off Eldean Road near Troy. He was sentenced in 1982 to 17 years to life in prison. He was out on parole at the time of the alleged offenses and was required to register as a sex offender in Miami County.
He was returned to prison in August.
With the latest convictions, Walker will again be designated a sex offender. He will be a Tier III offender, requiring lifetime registration following prison release.
