Man sentenced in sex attack
A Waynesboro, Pa., man was sentenced to one year in jail Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court for forcing a woman to perform oral sex after luring her into his car last May.
Kreed G. Gardner, 38, of 140 S. Church St., entered an Alford plea to a second-degree sex offense. Charges of first-degree sex offense, first-degree assault and false imprisonment were dropped in exchange for the plea.
In an Alford plea, a defendant acknowledges the state has evidence to gain a conviction but does not admit guilt.
The May 31 incident came to light when the victim showed up at Washington County Hospital and Hagerstown City Police were called.
