KANSAS – An Odessa man, accused of kidnapping a Kansas teen, cuts a plea deal.

Authorities say 21-year-old Roy Hernandez kidnapped the girl after posing for years as a transfer student at different schools.

Hernandez pleaded no contest in a Brown County, Kansas court on Wednesday to contributing to a child's misconduct and driving with a suspended license.

He will spend the next year on supervised probation and pay a fine.

Hernandez kidnapped the 17-year-old girl in Topeka, Kansas back in October. An amber alert was issued before he dropped her off unharmed at a bank near Wichita.
