RENO, NV - A former high-level employee at the Bureau of Land Management pleaded guilty Thursday in Washoe District Court to a sexual relationship with a young relative.

64-year-old Ronald Wenker will be sentenced in May to sexual assault and lewdness charges involving a minor under the age of 14.

Investigators believe the relationship started when the girl was 8, and he was arrested when she was 13, last year. Another relative had witnessed the abuse and reported it.

Wenker admitted the relationship and described struggling against feelings he knew were wrong, adding he thought his victim was enjoying it. He denied molesting any other children, saying he was not a pedophile
