A Dothan man pleaded guilty to a felony sex abuse charge on Thursday.

Court records show 44-year-old Bobby Joe Bennett pleaded guilty to a first-degree sex abuse charge in front of Circuit Court Judge Butch Binford. Records show as part of the plea agreement Bennett received a 10-year prison sentence.

But Bennett was allowed to remain free on bail until the completion of a probation hearing scheduled for next month.

Records also show two other similar charges of sex abuse of a child under the age of 12 and first-degree sex abuse were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

Attorney Jim Parkman represented Bennett in court.

Dothan police investigators arrested Bennett on the charges in August 2012.
