Former Murray State cheerleader Dannis Seay entered an Alford plea Wednesday in regard to a 2019 first-degree rape charge.

Seay entered an Alford plea, in which the defendant maintains innocence, but admits the prosecution’s evidence would likely result in a guilty verdict. He entered a guilty plea to sexual misconduct, which is Class A misdemeanor. This misdemeanor carries a maximum of one year in prison. 

Seay, 28, was arrested in 2019 on a charge of first-degree rape/incapable of consent-physically helpless.

He will be sentenced at 8:30 a.m. on Nov 6 at the Calloway County Circuit Court. Seay is currently out on bond with a provision to not contact the victim.
