Two Roane County men are headed to prison after pleading guilty to sex crimes against children.
William Howard Waters was indicted on one count of child rape last year.
The 3-year-old victim was sexually penetrated by Waters, according to the indictment.
He faced as much as 60 years in prison on the original charge.
However, after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors, he will serve less than a decade.
Waters, 32, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual battery.
He was sentenced last week to eight years in prison.
