A St. Johns County man, whose confession to sexual battery was thrown out in 2006, pleaded to a lesser charge on Friday and was sentenced to 45 months in prison.

St. Johns Circuit Judge Wendy W. Berger also sentenced Justin Wade Sullivan, 20, to 10 years of sex-offender probation for lewd and lascivious battery on his victim, who was under 12 years old.

The judge warned him not to violate his probation. If he does, she said, he could face additional prison time.

Sullivan could have gotten 15 years in prison for the second-degree felony.

He was facing life without parole for the original charge of capital sexual battery on a person under 12.
