COLUMBUS, Ohio-- An Ohio man has pleaded guilty to charges that he tried to force his pregnant girlfriend at gunpoint to get an abortion.
Dominic Holt-Reid entered his pleas in a Columbus courtroom Thursday to attempted murder and abduction charges and a weapons count.
He was charged under a 1996 fetal homicide law.
Police say Holt-Reid pulled a gun Oct. 6 on his girlfriend, Yolanda Burgess, who was three months pregnant, and forced her to drive to an abortion clinic.
Burgess did not go through with the procedure. She slipped a note to a clinic employee, who called police.
Holt-Reid faces up to 20 years in prison and $40,000 fine.
