A Bossier City man pleaded guilty in Caddo District Court Tuesday, December 18, 2018, to molestation of a juvenile.

Pace was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Edwin L. Blewer III, and was defended by Kurt Goins.

In a sentence derived after consultation with the victim’s family, Pace received a 20-year hard labor sentence with five years to be served without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence. Pace also must register as a sex offender for 25 years after his release.
