ALLEGANY, N.Y. (WIVB) – An Olean man accused of raping a teen under the age of 15 accepted a plea deal Tuesday.

Keith Ellis previously pleaded not guilty to second degree rape and endangering the welfare of a child, but accepted a plea deal for second degree attempted rape. Prosecutors say the 19-year-old had sex with a person less than 15-years-old last July in the Town of Allegany.

Ellis will be sentenced in July.
