JEROME, Idaho -- A Jerome man charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl two years ago has pleaded guilty in a deal reached with prosecutors.

Davis Jose Raymundo pleaded guilty to sexual battery of a child younger than 16 in 5th District Court Monday. The victim later gave birth to twins and DNA evidence shows Raymundo is the father.

Raymundo will be sentenced next month.

Jerome County Prosecutor John Horgan says will recommend a prison term of three to seven years and suggest the court retain jurisdiction in the case. The Times-News reports that means Raymundo will undergo treatment before a judge decides whether he serves more time in prison.

The assault occurred at a party in July 2011. Raymundo and the victim said they were intoxicated and couldn't remember the encounter.
