Anthony Hink Enters Alford Plea To Sex Crime Charges
A Casper man and convicted sex offender, has acknowledged that there is evidence that could prove that he re-offended.
Anthony Hink has entered an Alford plea to one charge of first degree sexual abuse of a minor, and one charge of third degree sexual abuse of a minor.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in February 2015, they were informed by a third party, that the female victim had been raped repeatedly.
A forensic interview was done with the Child Advocacy Project, and the victim said Hink often used force so that she couldn't move, and at times she felt like she couldn't breathe.
Prosecutors said they have DNA evidence taken from blankets that can link Hink to crime,
Hink is also a registered sex offender, and has an immoral and indecent acts with a minor conviction on his record, from back in 2000, according to the Wyoming Sex Offender Registry.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than 25 years in prison.
Hink is free on $75,000 bond, and will be sentenced at a later date.
An Alford plea is not an admission of guilt, but acknowledges that prosecutors have enough evidence and/or testimony, that it would get a guilty conviction from a jury, if the case went to trial.
