A St. Albans man pleaded guilty to incest involving his young stepdaughter more than 10 years ago.
Dean Jackson Kinder, 53, told a judge he allowed the girl to perform oral sex on him. Prosecutors said the girl was between 6 and 8 years old when the sex acts occurred.
Kinder was arrested in January after a North Carolina social worker contacted authorities in West Virginia based on a report she took from the victim, now 17 years old. She said the abuse occurred when she lived with Kinder in Belle.
He faces a possible five to 15 years in the penitentiary when he is sentenced in October. Kinder is being held in South Central Regional Jail.
