A 40-year-old Coeur d'Alene man pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a child under 16, which is a felony in the State of Idaho.
In early Dec. a four-year-old girl said her uncle had touched her inappropriately at a family member's home in Hayden.
The girl reportedly told police the man put his hands inside her underwear whole she sat on his lap.
During a recorded phone call with the parents of the girl, the man allegedly apologized for touching the four-year-old's private area.
The man was arrested at his residence in Dec. If convicted he could face up to life in prison.
He is scheduled for sentencing in Mar.
The name of the man was not released because that would identify the victim.
