A retired police officer in central Ohio has pleaded guilty to charges involving sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl.

Eric McKee, 49, of Chillicothe pleaded guilty this week in Ross County Common Pleas Court to four charges including two misdemeanor counts of sexual imposition.
 
The charges accuse McKee of physical sexual contact with the girl. He still faces 10 felony counts of unlawful sexual conduct.
 
The alleged incidents happened between 2010 and 2011, mostly before McKee retired from the Chillicothe Police Department after 25 years. He was indicted in October.
 
McKee is scheduled to be sentenced for the four charges in July. He will go to trial next month for the remaining charges.
 
An attorney for McKee was not immediately available to comment
