NORMAN — A 35-year-old man pleaded guilty and no contest to kidnapping and robbery charges Tuesday morning.

The separate pleas from Ryan Patrick Noe came after a jury was being seated in Cleveland County District Court before Judge Glenn Adams. He pleaded guilty to kidnapping and no contest to the robbery charge.

Noe was accused of kidnapping and robbing a Norman man and setting him free in McClain County. The victim told police he was robbed of money, and his Ford pickup was stolen by the subjects when he was kidnapped, the affidavit states.

Assistant district attorney Susan Caswell said Judge Adams ordered a pre-sentencing report and set sentencing for Nov. 15.
