The man accused of allowing his girlfriend to stay in his bathroom for so long she got stuck to the toilet seat pleaded No Contest in a Ness County courtroom Friday morning.

Kory McFarren's older sister, Kim Roth, said she's pleased with the plea agreements her brother's lawyer and the county attorney have agreed upon.

"I think things went really good for us," Roth said.

By pleading No Contest to the mistreatment of a dependent adult charge, one of McFarren's recommended sentencing guidelines is that he is to have no contact with the victim in the case, Pam Babcock, without the consent of Babcock's physician. McFarren is also required to undergo a mental evaluation.

"He is sentenced to six months in county jail, but he's put on immediate
probation through the court services office for one year," said Ness County Attorney Craig Crosswhite.

McFarren also faces and additional six months in the county jail as part of his No Contest plea on the charge of lewd and lascivious behavior.

In April, McFarren was arrested after being caught allegedly masturbating in plain sight of his 14-year-old neighbor girl.

The girl's parents, Jeff and Jennifer Smith, said the plea agreement's sentencing guidelines are not harsh enough because this is not the first time McFarren has faced these kind of charges.

McFarren was convicted on two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior 11 years ago.

He is scheduled to appear in court July 29th at 2:00 p.m. to receive his sentencing.
