Speer to Change Plea

Posted: Updated:

A Bozeman man accused of kidnapping a sexually assaulting a Cody girl will appear in court in November.

According to documents, Jesse Spear will change his plea in Park County District Court on November 19th. Speer faces six felony charges related to the disappearance of an 11-year-old Cody girl in October of 2012. Investigators say Speer lured the girl to his vehicle by saying he needed help finding a lost puppy. The Park County prosecutor said Speer took her at gunpoint to a remote area, where she was sexually assaulted, and then abandoned. If convicted of kidnapping, Speer could face life in prison.
