Lewiston man pleads guilty to inappropriate behavior with with teen girl

LOGAN — A 51-year-old Lewiston man has pleaded guilty to inappropriate behavior with a teenage girl. Kimball Thurgood waived his right to a preliminary hearing and accepted a plea deal that will likely reduce the amount of jail time he serves.

Thurgood appeared in 1st District Court Thursday afternoon. He pleaded guilty to attempted sexual battery and furnishing alcohol to a minor, both amended to class B misdemeanors.

State attorney Jacob Gordon told the court how in May, Thurgood gave alcohol to a teenage girl. He then began kissing her legs, moving up until he was kissing her pelvis area.

The victim later reported the abuse and Thurgood was arrested. He was originally charged with sexual abuse of a minor, a third-degree felony.

During Thursday’s court appearance, Judge Brian Cannell ordered Thurgood to have a pre-sentence report done on his criminal history by probation officers. He also ordered him to appear for sentencing on January 23.

Thurgood could face up to six-months in jail for each charge.
