Man accused of kidnapping and beating women

A 25-year-old South Carolina man was accused of kidnapping two women on two separate occasions. The first charge was filed after the man was brought into custody for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend over a two-day period and taking her cellphone so that she couldn't call for help. When the man was released on bail, he allegedly got rid of a GPS monitor that he was wearing.

According to reports, the second kidnapping charge was filed after the man agreed to drive a woman to a Walmart store in South Carolina. After the woman got into his pickup truck, the man allegedly told her that she could not leave because he was wanted by the police. The woman claims that the man destroyed her cellphone and then beat and raped her while the two traveled to Maine.

On July 25 just after 2:30 a.m., police in Lewiston were called to a Super 8 Motel. Once there, police discovered a woman who appeared to have been beaten. When police later talked to the accused man, he denied raping or beating the woman and said that she had agreed to travel to Maine with him. The man has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

When the prosecution has an overwhelming amount of evidence to use against a defendant, the defendant may decide to negotiate for a plea deal instead of pleading innocent. A criminal defense attorney may be able to assist someone who is accused of violent federal crimes to work out a plea deal with a reduced sentence. In some cases, a defendant might argue for a reduced sentence by presenting evidence that they have mental illness.
