A Gurnee man who was sentenced to six years in prison in July under a plea deal that had resolved a Round Lake Park child sexual assault case is seeking to withdraw his guilty plea, according to authorities.

Rodrick R. Linnear, 36, pleaded guilty in mid-July to attempted predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, and under the agreement is to serve a six-year sentence with a possibility 50 percent good time credit in prison.

In exchange for the plea, several counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and abuse were dismissed.
