A Hodgenville man pleaded guilty to an amended charge last week in LaRue Circuit Court, yet continued to assert his innocence.
James E. Jeffries, 68, of Hodgenville, was charged last year with sexual abuse of a 10-year-old child.
Through a plea agreement, Jeffries pleaded guilty via an Alford plea to one count of third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor, a class A misdemeanor. Through an Alford plea, he maintains his innocence but agrees that the prosecution could likely prove the charge.
