Bismarck man to change plea for coercion, enticement of a minor charge

BISMARCK, N.D. - A 24-year-old Bismarck man is set to change his plea Wednesday for a coercion and enticement of a minor charge from 2017.

Court records say Timothy Carnahan knowingly used the internet and a cellphone to persuade, induce, entice and coerce a minor who he believed was 16 years old to engage in sexual activity.

His sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 11.
