Lebanon — Former Whitestown Utility manager Kevin Servies has accepted a plea agreement on multiple counts of sexual battery involving two town employees.

A jury trial was to have begun at 8:30 a.m. Monday in Superior Court I, but was canceled after the plea was filed. Judge Matthew Kincaid has 30 days to review the plea and decide whether it will be accepted or rejected.

Servies has admitted to two counts of misdemeanor battery; he had faced those and four counts of class D felony sexual battery and one class D felony count of criminal confinement. He would serve a suspended three-year sentence under one count and 180 days each on five other counts; all sentences would be concurrent.

The town fired Servies on Oct. 11, 2011; in May 2012, Jason Lawson, who had be interim utility manager after Servies was fired, was officially given the job.
