Keenan sentenced in extortion case

Posted: Updated:
The Dalton woman convicted of felony extortion has been sentenced today in Cheyenne County District Court.

30-year-old Kristie Keenan was sentenced to 12 to 36 months in a facility yet to be determined, after pleading no contest to the charge in May. 

According to court documents, Keenan found about an incident where Frei  had allegedly touched Keenan's seven-year-old daughter inappropriately, and demanded that she be financially compensated. When members from the Sheriff's office went to arrest Frei, he told them that he had paid Keenan $10,000 cash of the $20,000 that she was making him pay.

In December, Frei pled no contest to amended 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.
