CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A South Mountain, Pa., man charged with the attempted rape of a 17-year-old girl who was having car trouble has pleaded not guilty.
Jamie Lynn Sease, 32, entered the plea Wednesday during his arraignment in Franklin County Court. He will be scheduled for the November trial term on charges of criminal attempt to rape, attempted sexual assault, unlawful restraint and indecent assault, according to court records.
Pennsylvania State Police said Sease and a friend encountered the girl and her two companions on Rattlesnake Run Road, where they were stranded after a car crash.
Sease helped the group push their vehicle off the road, and then engaged in conversation about mutual acquaintances, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
