WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A 46 year old Carthage man, who a plea deal in a child sexual assault case, is going to prison.

Terick Goodwin was sentenced Friday in Lewis County Court 15 years to life behind bars.

In June, he pleaded guilty to two counts of predatory sexual assault against a child.

Last September, Goodwin was accused of having sexual contact with a child under the age of 13 in the town of Denmark.

He was indicted in December on four felony counts of predatory sexual assault against a child and a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.

State police arrested Goodwin in September following a foot chase on Leray Street in Watertown that involved several police agencies. The chase ended in a garage.
