A Mayes County man pleaded guilty Wednesday to raping a 9-year-old child and received a 10-year suspended sentence.

 Walter Dale Oliphant Jr., 18, was charged as a Youthful Offender in Mayes County District Court in Pryor because he was a juvenile when the 2008 rape occurred.

 “The victim’s family requested he (Oliphant) not serve any jail time,” said Becky Gore, assistant district attorney.

 He was scheduled to have a non-jury trial on Wednesday, according to court records.
