Tenn man pleads not guilty, but insane to charges
ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) - An eastern Tennessee man has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges he attacked a jogger five years ago and threatened to rape her and other charges.
The Johnson City Press reported (http://bit.ly/1cwCqzK ) that 27-year-old Bradley S. Sneed is being held in a state facility in Nashville. Assistant District Attorney General Ryan Curtis says he's hoping Sneed is subject to a treatment plan at the facility and not released soon.
Police arrested Sneed in June 2008 after a woman described being tackled from behind and dragged into a field where she was choked and threatened with rape.
Sneed is also charged with the January 2009 fire at the Unicoi County Sheriff's Office where books and papers were lit on fire while Sneed was being held in the jail.
