Antonio Deshawn Banks, 32, of Lebanon, pleaded guilty Monday to attempted statutory rape by an authority figure, a class C felony.

Banks is the victim’s uncle.

According to Assistant District Attorney Tom Swink, a judge will determine Banks’ sentence at a sentencing hearing scheduled for May 21 at 1 p.m.

Banks will also be placed on the sex offender registry as a violent offender as a result of his conviction.

This story was updated March 27 to reflect the plea of attempted statutory rape. It was previously reported Banks pleaded guilty to statutory rape, which was inaccurate.
