JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ A 25-year-old man is accused of failing to get a vasectomy as promised in a plea bargain to avoid trial for impregnating two underage girls.

Wayne Russell Thomas faces up to 17 years in prison if a judge decides he violated terms of his probation, which included the vasectomy.

In April 1994, Thomas pleaded guilty to lewd and lascivious conduct for having sex with a 15-year-old who got pregnant. Under the agreement, Thomas served a year in jail and areed to have the vasectomy within 90 days.

A judge later denied a request that the vasectomy agreement be dropped.

Suzanne Worrall Green, Thomas' current attorney, said she had just been appointed to the case and wasn't familiar enough with it to comment.

Thomas has been in custody since Feb. 11.
