A Nicholasville man entered an Alford guily plea in connection to a string of burglaries that occurred in 2012. Ala “Mike” Samaan, 45, entered the plea Monday in Jessamine Circuit Court. An Alford plea means Samaan does not admit guilt, but he believes the evidence against him is strong enough for prosecutors to prove the charge. Samaan was charged with five counts of receiving stolen property and one count of third-degree sexual abuse. According to court documents, the Commonwealth's Attorney's office recommended a five-year prison sentence for the receiving stolen property charges, and a 30-day jail sentence for the sexual abuse charge against an adult victim.
