@sc: A Lee County man acquitted last month on sexual battery charges has pleaded guilty to fondling another girl in a separate incident.

Jim Link of Lee County entered a guilty plea earlier this week on a charge of fondling a Pontotoc girl who was visiting his family in 1995, said Rowland Geddie, assistant district attorney.

Link was sentenced to a seven-year suspended sentence.

The victim of the fondling incident, who was 13 years old at the time, was visiting the girl who brought the sexual battery charges against Link, sheriff's department investigators said.
