Former Talk KSRO-A and AC KZST/SANTA ROSA, CA anchor/reporter RON KIRK (KUHLMEYER) agreed to plead guilty to one felony count of child molestation in a plea bargain that will see 14 other charges be dismissed, reports the SANTA ROSA PRESS DEMOCRAT.
KIRK, who pleaded guilty to a count alleging over three lewd acts with a girl between JULY 2004 and AUGUST 2006, faces up to 16 years in prison and will have to register as a sex offender, although his attorney told the PRESS DEMOCRAT that his client believes he will be eligible for parole. KIRK was arrested last year after the girl told detectives that KIRK had touched her inappropriately during the time she was 11 through 14 years old.
