Potter man enter pleas to reduced charges

A Potter man who claims he was the victim of an extortion plot by a Dalton woman has entered no contest pleas to misdemeanor child abuse and witness tampering in a plea bargain agreement with Cheyenne County prosecutors. 56 year old Jason Frei is accused of inappropriately touching a young girl.

According to court documents, once 30 year old Kristie Keenan learned of the situation, she tried to extort $20,000 from Frei through text messages in exchange for not telling Police about the situation. The documents say that in the text messages Keenan said she wanted Frei to get a loan immediately and maintained all the texts between them would be deleted if he complied.

Keenan is facing trial while Frei will be sentenced February 11th at 9:30 a.m.
