CAMP VERDE -- A possible change of plea could be heard in the Tessa Fanning case during a hearing scheduled for early March.

Last April, Fanning, 22, Cottonwood, was indicted by a grand jury on three counts of sexual conduct with a minor. She is accused of having a sexual relationship with a person younger than 18 during 2011. The mother of the minor had earlier asked a lower court for an order of protection.

Fanning has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Court records call for negotiations for a plea agreement and a hearing to compare the consequence of going to trial on the original three felony charges vs. a plea bargain.

The case is being adjudicated before Judge Jennifer Campbell in Yavapai County Superior Court.

Thomas Kelly of Prescott is the defense attorney.

Coconino County deputy attorney Bryan Shea is prosecuting the case.

I guess we'll see if your daddy's connections really carry any weight or not, eh?

If this was a man charged with these crimes, he would be headed to prison for a VERY long time.
