A second person entered a guilty plea in a child sexual assault case in Lincoln County. The incident was reported in September of 2018.

On Friday (January 11) in Lincoln County Superior Court, 27-year-old Ashley Nichole Lattimore of Koliha Lane in Maiden pleaded guilty to first degree statutory sex offense and felony child abuse involving a sexual act. Lattimore was sentenced to a minimum of 240 months and a maximum of 348 months, or 20 to 29 years. That will be followed by 30 months supervised probation when she is released from prison. Lattimore must also register as a sex offender for the remainder of her life. A permanent no contact order has been put into place preventing Lattimore from ever having contact with the victim.
