As part of a plea deal, Walker pleaded in county Common Pleas Court to nine counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor and five counts of sexual battery. Prosecutors dismissed two counts of sexual battery.
In the plea agreement, a sentence of 13 years was recommended. If sentenced to the maximum time, he could have received up to 97 years in prison.

Before sentencing Monday, Walker apologized to the victim, who is now 17 and was in court.
“I hope with time you will be able to forgive me,” Walker said.
A written statement was read for the victim by a victim advocate. The victim said she was afraid of what would happen if she told what was occurring with Walker, and said she continues to have nightmares.
Watkins called Walker’s actions horrific.
“I think this defendant has proven he is a danger to those around him, the community as a whole,” he said.
Walker, then 20 and living in Troy, was convicted of murder in the October 1981 death of 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 in a parole violation.
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.
