Virginia -- A 19-year-old karate school employee/instructor from Ashland who was accused of exposing himself to a 6-year-old girl, has pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated sexual battery.
Authorities said the man followed the young victim into a bathroom at the karate school near Richmond and exposed himself to her. He was arrested in late February, shortly after the incident.
The devastated owners of the school had reportedly done a background check on the young man before he was hired. The wife of the owner had known the man all his life and she had no indication there was anything suspicious about him.
