KENT, Wash. (AP) – A Kent man has pleaded guilty to federal charges stemming from a sexual abuse of a teenager at Olympic National Park.

Thirty-six year old Christopher James Kuna was at a gathering with family and friends at the park when he gave alcohol to the 14-year-old victim and sexually assaulted her in August 2020.

That’s according to Acting U.S. Attorney Tessa Gorman.

The plea agreement said Kuna was a trusted family friend of the victim and her family.

The maximum penalty is life in prison.
