TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A former Washburn University graduate assistant football coach who originally was charged with aggravated kidnapping and rape has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/2dvmvdw ) reports that 23-year-old Jesse Robert Bubke, of Topeka, admitted Tuesday to one count of battery and two counts of criminal restraint. Under the plea, he will serve 60 days in the Shawnee County Jail and be placed on probation for 10 months after that.

Senior assistant district attorney Dustin Curry told the judge he had discussed the proposed plea with the victim, who was in full agreement with it.

Police said the woman reported in March that she had been kidnapped from a bar, taken to Bubke’s home, assaulted and released. As a graduate assistant, Bubke has coached defensive backs.
