CASPER, Wyo. — A Casper man has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a boy.

A lawyer for 31-year-old Derek Alexander McCollum pleaded guilty Tuesday morning in Natrona County District Court.

Prosecutors say the abuse occurred in 2007 and 2008 with a boy who was 5 and 6 years old at the time.

McCollum faces up to 30 years in prison when he's sentenced following completion of a pre-sentence report. His sentence will run together with a 10-year sentence he's currently serving in Missouri for theft and sexual exploitation of a minor.
