A man accused of sexually assaulting young boys pleaded guilty in a Little Rock courtroom Tuesday afternoon.
Former Kidsports gymnastics coach, Ronnie Lewis pleaded guilty to 5 counts of rape, and 6 counts of sexual abuse.
Lewis was sentenced to 50 years in prison, and won't be eligible for parole for 35 years.
The plea agreement keeps his victims from having to testify at a trial.
The families of the victims are relieved, prosecutors say, that their children will not have to rehash the crimes in court.
