Plea Agreement To Be Reached In Polson Murder-For-Hire Case

Posted: Updated:
POLSON -

A plea agreement is in the works in the case of a Polson man, charged with raping his former girlfriend, stalking her and trying to hire someone to kill her, all to prevent her from testifying against him.

Deputy Lake County Attorney Jessica Cole-Hodgkinson and prosecutors said they're close to reaching an agreement that will cover all charges against 57-year-old Dennis Hobbs. Hobs' attorney said his client had only one concern with the deal that would be quickly addressed. Hobbs was charged last month with solicitation of deliberate homicide, stalking and tampering with witnesses and informants.

 He was charged last year with two counts of sexual intercourse without consent and assault, after his ex-girlfriend reported Hobbs raped her in August.
