Belgrade man pleads guilty to multiple charges including sexual assault

AUGUSTA - A man accused of sexually assaulting an 11 year old girl in Belgrade was supposed to go on trial today.

That didn't happen because Travis Gerrier, 23, decided to plead guilty to charges including gross sexual assault and furnishing liquor to a minor. Authorities say Gerrier gave the child alcohol in June of 2015 and molested her in a porta potty.

 

According to the Morning Sentinel, today's guilty pleas are conditional. He's challenging previous rulings that determined he's competent to stand trial and another to suppress his confession to police.

 

If he wins his appeal, Gerrier will be allowed to withdraw his pleas. Otherwise, he's scheduled to be sentenced this fall.
