Also in court today, a man charged with two counts of sexual contact with a minor under 15-years-old.

49-year-old Ricky Lee Chenoweth was sentenced to 15 years in prison for each charge of Gross Sexual Imposition, with all but 18 months months suspended.

He will also be required to register as a sex offender, and must complete a domestic violence treatment class.

Chenoweth has a few prior misdemeanor charges, but nothing related to rape or sexual assault.

The victim was not present, but the judge made clear she is the most important consideration in this case. The judge added that he’s not convinced of Chenoweth’s remorse.

His lawyer says Chenoweth has already served 47 days, which will be subtracted from his sentence given today.
