CAMBRIDGE — A Kewanee man on Monday entered a partial negotiated plea in Henry County Circuit Court to one count Class 3 felony aggravated stalking and one count driving under the influence.

Dale Livingston, 43, had been charged with 13 counts Class 4 felony violation of an order of protection among four cases that had been joined for trial. Those counts were dismissed with his Alford plea to the stalking charge.

An Alford plea means he doesn't admit guilt but does admit there is enough evidence to convict him.

In exchange for his plea, he will have a cap of six years in prison. Sentencing was set for June 27.

According to court records, Mr. Livingston sent text messages and voice mails to a woman from March 12, 2012 and April 14, 2012 knowing they would cause her emotional distress.

The DUI charge is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail or probation.
