ZACHARY S. HOWARD, 21, pleaded guilty Sept. 8 to one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. In a plea agreement, another count of second-degree sexual abuse and a count of third-degree sexual abuse were dismissed. Prosecutors will recommend an imposed eight- to 15-year prison sentence, to be served concurrently with an earlier felony on which his probation was revoked because of the latest allegations. On that, he was sentenced to three to seven years. On the sexual abuse charge, Howard can argue for a lesser sentence, including Boot Camp, but prosecutors will argue against Boot Camp. He was accused of having sex with a young teenager, according to court documents. District Judge Stuart S. Healy III revoked his bond pending sentencing.
