GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A man accused of raping a young girl at least three times has pleaded guilty.

Wednesday in court Jeffrey Jansen pleaded guilty to sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

Under the plea agreement, Jansen will have to pay all restitution and cannot claim bankruptcy.

He is looking at two years to life in prison and ten years to life on parole.

Jansen told the judge he agreed to the deal simply because he is guilty.

He’s expected to be sentenced in early December.
