Newport kidnapping suspect to take plea deal

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 15th, 2014

NEWPORT — A plea agreement has been reached in the case of a Newport man accused of the kidnapping and attempted rape of an elementary school girl outside her apartment in December.

“We settled it,” said defense attorney Guy Greco at a Monday hearing for his client, Jesse Greene, at Lincoln County Circuit Court.

Greene, 28, faces two counts of kidnapping in the first degree, one count of kidnapping in the second degree, and one count of attempted rape in the first degree stemming from the Dec. 6 incident in Newport.

He is also charged with attempted sexual abuse in the first degree and harassment. Greene is being held on $2 million bail at Lincoln County Jail.
