kimAn alleged serial rapist has backed away from a plea agreement that would have sent him to prison for at least 35 years. At a March 23 hearing, 27-year-old Jimmy Carter Kim indicated he will go to trial rather than plead guilty to multiple sex offenses.

That Kim allegedly sexually assaulted several young women came to light after a Bullhead City teenager escaped his North Las Vegas home late last year. The runaway teen told authorities Kim held her as his sex slave for a month.
