Kidd Pleads Guilty

A Clarke County man who was originally scheduled for trial this week, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Jimmy Kidd, 67, was charged last year for sexual battery of a child. He could have received a sentence of 20 years to life.

Kidd recently entered a plea to lustful touching of a child and was sentenced to 10 years, which was suspended, and 5 years probation.

If Kidd fails to meet terms of the probation, he would have to serve the 10 years day for day.
