Man who stalked neighbor withdraws guilty plea

ADRIAN — Kent Ellsworth Losee, 45, withdrew his guilty plea on Wednesday, Oct. 9, to a felony aggravated stalking charge related to stalking a teen-aged Clinton neighbor. Losee appeared for sentencing in Judge Margaret M.S. Noe’s Lenawee County Circuit Courtroom.A plea bargain formerly offered was rescinded, including a dismissal of a charge for using a computer to commit a crime and agreement that state sentencing guidelines not be exceeded. Michigan State Police arrested Losee on Aug. 14, with a $500,000 bond after police searched his home and reported finding evidence that he might be preparing to leave the area with the girl. Michigan State Police also reported finding messages on YouTube directed at the neighbor girl. Judge Noe said that enough questions had been raised about the facts and circumstances surrounding the gathering of information on the original charge to justify a plea withdrawal. A personal protection order taken out against Losee last October remains in effect, prohibiting contact with the girl or her family. Losee’s bond was reduced to $50,000 on Aug. 30, following his guilty plea on condition that he wear a GPS tether. A jury trial has been set for Tuesday, Nov. 5.
