Dewey man gets prison in sex and drugs cases

Posted: Updated:

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A Dewey man has been sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison and 10 years' probation for attempted sexual abuse and transporting cocaine.

Yavapai County prosecutors say 19-year-old Freddie Lee Newkirk also was ordered Monday to register as a lifetime sex offender.

They say the prison sentence stems from a March 2012 incident in which Newkirk was in a vehicle that was stopped.

Authorities say Newkirk confessed to transporting cocaine for sale and pleaded guilty to attempted transportation of a narcotic drug.

They say the probation and sex offender sentences are the result of a criminal case in which a young girl claimed Newkirk sexually abused her about four years ago.
