Bingham pleads guilty

KNOXVILLE — Robert Bingham pleaded guilty to two counts of enticement of a minor in Marion County District Court this morning.

The charges were filed after authorities learned Bingham had sex with a 12 year old girl in 2008. The victim only recently came forward.

Sentencing is scheduled for April 19 at 9:30 a.m. The state is recommending 10 years in prison per count, though the sentence may be suspended in favor of five years of probation.

Bingham will have to register as a sex offender and undergo sex offender treatment.

The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"
