TERRYTOWN, La. - A Terrytown man is set to spend 25 years in jail after he plead guilty to attempted aggravated rape of a nine-year-old girl.

According to reports, Joel Orellana, 28, was initially charged with aggravated rape after the girl told her pastor's son in 2009 that Orellana had abused her while she was staying at his apartment.

The charge would have carried a life sentence. Prosecutors said the girl's mother approved the plea deal.
