Man pleads guilty to child-sex crimes

A former Pineville resident who was charged in Rapides Parish with more than 500 sex crimes related to children has pleaded guilty to a dozen of those offenses in a plea bargain.

The Town Talk reports 39-year-old Kyle Hauenstein pleaded guilty last week to three counts of aggravated rape, three counts of attempted sexual battery with a victim under age 13, three counts of aggravated incest and three counts of possession of pornography with juveniles.

He was sentenced to nine concurrent 35-year prison terms and three concurrent 20-year prison terms.

The abuse came to the attention of law enforcement agents when a family member of 32-year-old Elmer resident Dorothy Jean Vanasselberg discovered a photo of young, unclothed girl on Vanasselberg's computer.

Vanasselberg currently is awaiting trial.
