A 26 year old Lowville man, who faced robbery and kidnapping charges, has taken a plea deal.
Jacob Gearhart appeared Wednesday in Jefferson County Court where he pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted robbery.
He also pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in a separate case.
Gearhart faces 5 years in prison when he's sentenced November 19.
In January, Gearhart and an accomplice allegedly held a man against his will at knife-point and robbed him of $100 cash. The man was then released on Route 3, near Great Bend.
He was originally indicted on the following counts:
- second-degree kidnapping- first-degree robbery- second-degree robbery- first-degree unlawful imprisonment- fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property- third-degree criminal possession of a weapon
