An Albemarle County man pleaded guilty to raping a 15-year-old old girl he knew and was sentenced to nearly two decades behind bars Wednesday in Albemarle Circuit Court.
Cecil Allen White, 51, was facing a total of six charges but because of the guilty plea agreement with the commonwealth, five were dropped.
The prosecution said Wednesday in court that the victim said the abuse began when she was in eighth grade. When she was taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center in 2011, it was discovered she was pregnant.
The prosecution said DNA samples and other physical evidence prove White is the father.
The judge ordered White to serve 50 years with 33 years suspended on the condition of good behavior. He is also required to serve two years of supervised probation once released from jail.
White will not be allowed unsupervised contact with minors after he serves his sentence.
When the judge asked if he had anything to say before reading his sentence, he did not offer an apology. Instead, he simply said, "no."
