LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 34-year-old Minnesota man could get probation or prison time in Nevada after pleading guilty to felony coercion for keeping his ex-girlfriend against her will at a motel in the resort city of Mesquite.

Jason Edward Greniger is due for sentencing Monday in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas after pleading guilty April 24 to a single felony charge in the case stemming from his arrest in January.

Prosecutors agreed to drop a kidnapping count that could have gotten Greniger up to 15 years in prison.

Greniger had also been sought in Minnesota on a warrant in a felony child punishment case.

Greniger’s ex-girlfriend, Sheena Herschbach, told police that Greniger used physical violence to keep her at the motel about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
