A 59-year-old Waterloo man accepted a plea deal Monday on charges related to a sexual abuse investigation.
Prosecutors claimed that on March 15th, John Valder forcibly touched the intimate areas of a female under the age of 16. He claimed due to a diabetic blackout he doesn’t remember the incident. Valder, who was charged with three counts of forcible touching and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, pleaded guilty to felony attempted sexual abuse.
He was sentenced to 21 days in jail and 10 years probation. Valder must also register as a sex offender.
