Man pleads no contest in molestation of boy, 14, he met on MySpace

A 47-year-old man accused of sexually molesting a 14-year-old boy he met on MySpace pleaded no contest Wednesday to oral copulation and sodomy charges, authorities said.

Achilles Dartgnan Corelleone of Salton City pleaded to three counts of oral copulation of a person under 16 and one count of sodomy of a person under 16, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.

Corelleone, also known as Arlan Gene Reynoldson, was sentenced to five years in state prison after entering his plea in Superior Court in Pomona, according to the district attorney's office.

Corelleone will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. He met the youth in March 2009, the district attorney's office said.
