HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A Barboursville man has pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault and sexual abuse by a caregiver against a minor during a hearing in Cabell County Circuit Court Wednesday morning.

In January 2010, Ronald McGuire, 43, was indicted on five counts of sexual abuse by parent or guardian, three counts of second-degree sexual assault and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

As part of the plea agreement eight of the counts are being dismissed.

Prosecutors say the two victims were female relatives that were 16-years-old and younger. The charges are from incidents that happened between 2004 and 2008.

Both of the victims, who are now adults, were not in court Wednesday, but are expected to speak at McGuire’s sentencing on June 25.

McGuire will remain on home confinement until his sentencing.
