A 68-year-old Delta man has pleaded no contest to attempted sexual abuse of a child.

Van Webb Taylor made the plea, the effective equivalent of a guilty plea without an admission of guilt, before 4th District Judge Ray M. Harding last week.He faces a possible prison sentence of zero to five years. Sentencing is set for Oct. 12 at 10 a.m. before Judge Harding.

The incident reportedly occurred in Utah County on Aug. 2, 1990, and involved a 12-year-old girl.
