(KHNL) - An Oahu man accused of abducting and raping a girl two years ago changes his mind on the eve of his trial.

Anton Myklebust, a former driver for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Honolulu, pleaded guilty to several counts including kidnapping, drug trafficking and robbery Wednesday. As part of a plea agreement, sex assault charges were dropped.

Prosecutors say Myklebust pulled a 17-year-old girl into his Big Brothers Big Sisters truck, injected her with methamphetamine, and stole money from her. The 28-year-old faces up to 20 years in prison and must still register as a sex offender under the plea agreement.

Prosecutors say they cut the deal to spare the victim from testifying at trial.
