Man to plead not guilty in kidnap-child sex case


The suspect who was expected to plead guilty in a kidnapping and sexual assault case involving teenage girls decided not to accept the plea deal.

Jimmy Carter Kim, 27, did not accept a plea deal Wednesday in Clark County District Court. He now plans to plead not guilty and will be arraigned on March 28.

Kim is facing 83 charges including sexual assault with a minor, kidnapping, lewdness, attempted sexual assault and using a minor in producing pornography.

Under the plea deal, most of the charges against Kim would have been dismissed and he would have served at least 35 years in prison.

Kim was arrested after a 14-year-old girl from Arizona contacted police and told them he held her captive for one month and repeatedly sexually assaulted her. Other victims were discovered after that.

The case will now go to trial.
