Two to ten years in prison.

That's what a mineral wells man faces after a guilty plea Friday.

27-year old Travis Vincent was originally charged with seven counts of sexual abuse.

But Friday in circuit court, he pleaded guilty to two counts of first degree sexual abuse.

He was arrested nearly two years ago charged with assaulting two girls under ten.

In court Friday, he admitted to inappropriately touching the two girls in July and August of 2011.

Sentencing is set for August 12th.
