Man pleads guilty to groping teen girl near Stamford bus stop
A Connecticut man accused of groping a 14-year-old girl as she walked to her bus stop has pleaded guilty.
According to investigators, Humberto Garcia-Palacio, 32, exposed himself to the girl near a Stamford bus stop back in October of 2016 before groping her and running off.
The Stamford Advocate reports Garcia-Palacio pleaded guilty Monday after a judge ruled a jury would be able to hear about two previous arrests for exposing himself in public.
Garcia-Palacio faces up to 20 years in prison when sentenced in March.
His lawyer says he accepted the plea deal given "the weight of the evidence."
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
