A Fort Wayne man has pleaded guilty to having sex with a 15-year-old girl in early 2016. David J. Reichard, 22, of the 2600 block of Clara Avenue, pleaded guilty Friday in Allen Superior Court to sexual misconduct with a minor, a Level 4 felony.

According to terms of the open, or cap, plea agreement, Reichard would receive no less than three year and no more than six years if Allen Superior Court Judge Fran Gull accepts the terms April 21 at sentencing. 

A second sexual misconduct charge also would be dismissed at sentencing.

Reichard admitted he had a sexual relationship with the girl between Jan. 13, 2016 and April 30. Police were called to the girl's residence May 27 and spoke with her mother who said her daughter had had a sexual relationship with Reichard. Police interviewed the girl, who said they both were aware of their age difference and that she had feelings for him.
