KALISPELL, Mont. -

A 31-year old Flathead man pleaded guilty to sexual assault on Thursday. Wayne Moore was accused of molesting his girlfriend?s daughter, age 11, as well as two other young girls.

Moore pleaded guilty as part of a plea agreement. Prosecutors combined three felony counts of sexual assault into one, and are recommending a 40 year jail sentence, 20 years of which would be suspended. Moore's attorney Sean Hinchey says he will be asking for a lesser sentence.

Moore still faces a sentence up to life in prison, and his sentencing is scheduled for July 5.
