(ABC 6 News) -- New developments in the case involving a 62-year-old Leroy man, accused of sexually abusing a young relative.

It is a disturbing case out of Mower County. Monday we've learned the man at the center of it is planning to plead guilty.

Marvin Lego of Leroy signed a petition to enter a guilty plea to 3 counts of felony criminal sexual conduct. According to the criminal complaint, a 14-year-old relative confided in Lego that she was being molested.

He told her to prove it, by doing the same sex act on him. That way he'd know if she was telling the truth. Authorities say the girl resisted, but eventually did what Lego told her to.

Lego admitted to investigators what the girl did to him, but says it wasn't sexual. He was expected to meet with prosecutors Monday.

We're still working to find out what happened with that meeting. He's scheduled to be back in court for sentencing in January.
