A Bedford teen, who pleaded no contest to four counts of aggravated sexual battery will face juvenile penalties for his crime.
The charges against Joshua Lovell, now 15, stem from incidents that occurred with two young girls, ages 2 and 3, who were under the care of his mother. Direct indictments landed Lovell in Bedford County Circuit Court, rather than Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, where he was tried as an adult.
Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Wes Nance called the victims' parents to the stand.
