An Excelsior Springs man guilty of statutory rape will be in a Ray County courtroom Wednesday afternoon for sentencing.

Ernest Cozadd, 50, made the guilty plea in May.  That charge was filed in connection with an incident in March of 2012 in which Cozadd had sex with a person less than 14 years of age.

Cozadd will go before Judge Miller at 3:30 p.m. and could face as many as 15 years in prison.
