Former Sonoma County radio newsman Ron Kirk is facing as much as 16 years in prison after pleading guilty to a felony count of child molestation, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports. He pleaded guilty to one count in exchange for 14 others being dropped. Kirk (pictured), 49, whose full name is Ron Kirk Kuhlmeyer, was a reporter and morning co-anchor at stations KZST and KSRO until his arrest in October. A girl who was a friend of Kirk’s family told detectives that he touched her inappropriately when she was between 11 and 14 years old, the newspaper reported. Sentencing is set for May.
