LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A six-year-old child molestation case has been settled with a plea deal.
   
The American Press reports (http://bit.ly/12VsNI7 ) 50-year-old Victor Sarvaunt entered an Alford plea Monday to molesting a 6-year-old female family member between August 2006 and August 2007.
   
Under an Alford plea, a defendant does not admit to the crime, but agrees there is enough evidence for a conviction.
   
Sarvaunt pleaded to one count of indecent behavior, amended from two counts of aggravated incest and two counts of sexual battery. Sarvaunt was originally indicted, in 2008, on two counts of aggravated rape and two counts of sexual battery.
   
He is to be sentenced July 16 in Lake Charles.
