Potter man agrees to plea deal in molestation/extortion case

Posted: Updated:

A Potter man has agreed to a plea deal in a bizarre molestation-turned-extortion case.

55-year-old Jason Frei agreed to plea no contest to the lesser charges of negligent child abuse and attempted witness tampering.

Prosecutors agreed to lower the original charge of sexually assaulting a child in exchange for Frei's pleas.

Frei was accused of inappropriately touching a 7-year-old girl while giving her mother a massage.

Authorities say the girl's mother, Kristie Keenan, then tried to extort $20,000 dollars from Frei to keep her from reporting the incident.

Keenan is now facing theft by extortion charges.
