A man accused of raping a 4-year-old is close to reaching a plea deal, according to lawyers involved in the case.
David L. Dodd, 42, was indicted in October 2008 on one count of child rape.
“We think we’re close in negotiations to settle that,” Dodd attorney Chris Cawood said. “If there is a settlement it will probably be on Monday.”
Cawood wouldn’t discuss what kind of deal is in the works.
“I can’t really disclose it now, until we see everything in writing,” he said.
