A man accused of engaging in deviate sexual intercourse with a minor received his final sentencing on Friday in Bell Circuit Court.
Judge Robert Costanzo sentenced Dustin Charles Green, 27, of Middlesboro, to 10 years in the penitentiary for an amended charge of second-degree sodomy. The sentence will be enhanced because of a persistent felony offender plea.
Green pleaded guilty to the charges on Nov. 8. The plea agreement was approved by the parents of the minor.
