ROCHESTER, Minn. – A former fugitive is pleading guilty to child sex abuse.

Majed Isaac Ijong, 25 of Rochester, entered a guilty plea Friday to one count of 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct. Ijong was charged in October 2017 with three counts of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct and two 2nd degree counts, all involving a child under the age of 13, and was arrested a month and a half later in California.

Ijong was found incompetent to stand trial in March but a judge reversed that ruling in September after a mental evaluation of Ijong.

His sentencing is now scheduled for December 10.
