An Ishpeming man will spend the next four to seven years in prison after pleading no contest to a criminal sexual conduct charge in Marquette County Circuit Court.

John Mathews, 44, was sentenced Thursday on one count of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree.  Mathews was given credit for 258 days served.

Four other CSC charges, including gross indecency between a male and female and fourth degree CSC were dismissed as part of his plea agreement.
