LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 35-year-old former pro hockey player is facing prison time and will have to register as a sex offender after taking a plea deal in Las Vegas in a case alleging he sexually assaulted a girl under 14 years of age over a four-year period.
Prosecutor Alexandra Chrysanthis said Friday that Michael McBain pleaded guilty Thursday in Clark County District Court to reduced charges of attempted sexual assault and attempted lewdness with a child.
McBain's lawyer, Robert Draskovich, was unavailable Friday for comment.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/NVRZsa ) that McBain faces two to 40 years in prison at sentencing Jan. 30.
McBain played for the Tampa Bay Lightning from 1997 to 1999 and for the minor league Las Vegas Wranglers from 2003 to 2008.
