Zachary Hammond Pleads Guilty To Sex Crime
An Evansville man has admitted that he had sex with an underaged girl that he had met on line.
Twenty-five year old Zachary Hammond has pleaded guilty to one count of second degree sexual abuse of a minor.
The case started in December, when a Natrona County Sheriff’s Deputy was notified that a man was caught with a 14-year old girl, in a pickup at the Casper Events Center.
The deputy spoke to the girl’s father, who brought in a computer with her page on the badoo.com website and her messages and photos.
Hammond said he first had contact with the girl in mid-November.
He said he had picked up the girl at night at her house in Paradise Valley, and took her to his apartment in Evansville.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a three-to-five year suspended prison sentence, and a term of probation to be decided on later.
Hammond is free on $10,000 bond and will be sentenced at a later date.
Another co-defendant, Kyle Stickley, had pleaded guilty to charges connected to this case and is waiting to be sentenced.
