The Portland Press Herald, reports that as part of the plea, Bosley agreed to a prison sentence of at least 14 years. Sentencing is scheduled for July 11. The victim, now 19, testified that as she was walking to school in October 2008 she was threatened with a knife and sexually assaulted. Bosley was tied to the crime through DNA evidence. He had claimed the sex was consensual.
