Two Cynthiana men who were to stand trial on Friday on sex-related charges entered guilty pleas during their final pretrial hearings Tuesday.
Donald Silcox will likely receive 12 years in prison with no chance for parole until at least 85 percent of the sentence has been served.
Silcox was initially charged with three counts of first degree sodomy (victim under 12 years old), four counts of use of a minor (under 16 years old) in a sexual performance and first degree sexual abuse (victim under 12 years old).
