A former Wayne County Justice Court judge has pleaded guilty to a rape charge.
Billy T. Bonner is scheduled to be sentenced during the March 2013 court term.
The 72-year-old Bonner was arrested in July of 2011 after Wayne General Hospital told authorities a 16-year-old rape victim had been brought to the medical facility.
Sheriff John Farrior says the girl was cleaning Bonner's house when the sexual assault occurred.
Bonner remains free on $100,000 bond.
