Greene withdraws not guilty plea
Ryan Greene of Imperial withdrew his “not guilty” pleas to a pair of felony terroristic threats charges during a hearing in Chase County District Court July 31. With no opposition from the county attorney’s office, the motion was granted.
His attorney asked the court for a plea in abatement.
According to County Attorney Arlan Wine, such a plea is made to contest the manner in which the charges are made or whether charges should have ever been made. As a result, the defendant would not have been required to enter a plea to the charges at all.
A hearing on the plea will be held on Sept. 25.
