PROVO, Utah (AP) — A Utah man accused of sexually abusing two children has pleaded guilty to two felony charges.

The Daily Herald reports Cody Ball pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child after reaching an agreement with prosecutors.

Prosecutors dropped seven other felony charges against him.

Ball was arrested in December 2016 after the father of the children alerted Pleasant Grove police.

According to court documents, the children told police that Ball had touched them inappropriately and he forced the children to touch him.

Ball is scheduled to be sentenced in June.
