A Wakeman man pleaded guilty Friday to a sex offense.

James E. Bolden, 23, of 5571 U.S. 20, Lot 2, was convicted of one charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. He faces six to 18 months in prison for the fourth-degree felony when he is sentenced Feb. 27.

Bolden, who is out on a personal recognizance bond, will be classified as a Tier II sex offender. That means he must register his address every 180 days for the next 25 years.

In early October, a Huron County grand jury indicted him on two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Bolden is prohibited from having any contact with "unrelated minors under the age of 18," according to Huron County Common Pleas Court records.
