ZONETON - A man accused of rape and improper transactions with a minor has been allowed to withdraw a guilty plea in Bullitt Circuit Court.
Nathaniel H. Hardy had previously entered a guilty plea on the amended charge of rape and five counts of complicity to criminal facilitation to unlawful transaction with a minor.
His recommended sentence would have been 14 years in prison.
Attorney Andrew Epstein requested the ability to withdraw the guilty plea due to learning that a co-defendant, Robert D. Beard, gave a statement against his client.
