Kansas Woman Admits to Aiding Man Who Kidnapped, Raped Girl

staff - April 23, 2016 6:19 am

A man accused of killing and wounding people in Mississippi, New Mexico and Kansas in February has waived a hearing.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas woman has pleaded guilty to aiding a man convicted of abducting an 8-year-old girl from her Topeka home, then drugging and raping her.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 24-year-old Michelle Lee Harris, of Topeka, admitted Thursday to reduced charges of attempted kidnapping and aiding a felon. As part of the plea, a third charge was dismissed.

She testified against Jeremy James Lindsey at his trial earlier this year. Prosecutors said he removed a sleeping girl from her mother’s Topeka home in 2014 and transported her in a car trunk. He raped her twice before calling Harris, who gave him and the girl a ride. Lindsey then raped the child a third time before she managed to free herself and escape.

Harris’ sentencing is scheduled for May 23.
