GREENVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – A Union City man was sentenced to prison time Monday for sex crimes against a child.

Richardo Chavez will spend 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl. The offenses took place between December 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012.

Bluebag Media reports that Chavez cried as he read a letter out loud in court directed to his victim.

“I know the person that committed this crime is not the type of person I am,” Richardo read. “I am not a predator that some people think I am. I loved the kids like they were my own.”

Chavez pleaded guilty to three counts of gross sexual imposition. Three counts of rape were dropped in exchange for the 10 year sentence.
