Fanning changes plea

Klamath Falls, Ore. – A Klamath Falls man is headed to prison for 10 years on sex charges.

Corey Elijah Fanning pleaded ‘no contest’ Tuesday to multiple charges including attempted first degree rape.

The victim in the case was an 11 year old girl.

“The evidence was strong in this case.”  Notes Klamath County Deputy District Attorney Cole Chase.  “The victim is a very strong young lady, but we didn’t want to have to put her through the trauma of a trial if we didn’t have to.”

Prosecutors say the abuse took place over a period of 3 years.

Fanning was initially charged with 6 measure 11 sex crimes.

Fanning entered his plea to lesser charges as part of a negotiated agreement.
