CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio man who has been accused of holding a 14-year-old girl captive for months and raping her while electronically monitored from an earlier abduction case is set for sentencing for luring the minor.
Cody Lee Jackson is to be sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Cincinnati. He pleaded guilty last year to coercion and enticement of a minor.
Other charges to be dismissed at sentencing if the judge accepts the plea agreement include production of child pornography.
Court documents say Jackson contacted the teenager through Facebook in 2015.
Authorities said he had the teen dropped off by taxi and prevented her from leaving his suburban Cincinnati home for months.
The defense has said Jackson has always denied kidnapping, raping or holding the girl against her will.
