After changing his pleas to guilty for felony charges of aggravated assault and first-degree stalking as part of a plea agreement, the Bannock County Prosecutors Office motioned to dismiss an enhancement for using a deadly weapon. Two separate persistent violator enhancements were also dismissed, as was a misdemeanor charge for providing officers with false information.
Keller also pleaded guilty to second-degree stalking, a misdemeanor.
Each of the felony charges carries with it a potential penalty of five years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 13, by District Court Judge Javier Gabiola.
