A Maryland man has pleaded guilty to several offenses involving three young girls in Nelson County. 57-year-old Kenneth Spratt (pictured) was sentenced to a total of 30 years in prison. Spratt admitted he molested three girls under 13 that he met at church. Nelson Commonwealth’s Attorney Anthony Martin says Spratt pleaded guilty to eight felonies, including two counts of production of child pornography. Martin says after the parents confronted Spratt, they turned over to authorities a laptop computer, several hard drives and other electronic equipment that Spratt left behind. Investigator William Mays got a search warrant and found several videos showing Spratt committing sexual acts with the girls. Judge J. Michael Gamble accepted a plea agreement where Spratt will have to serve 30 years in prison for the two counts of production of child pornography. Spratt received 5 years in prison on each of six charges of object sexual penetration, all of which were suspended. Remaining charges against Spratt were dismissed based on his guilty pleas.
