GREAT FALLS, Mont. -

A Great Falls teen who jumped over a balcony at the Cascade County Courthouse just before he was to plead guilty to raping an 11-year-old girl has now entered that plea.
    
Kaleb Kuebler pleaded guilty District Court Wednesday to sexual intercourse without consent as part of a plea agreement that recommends a 60 year prison sentence with 30 suspended. District Judge Greg Pinski accepted the plea and scheduled sentencing for Dec. 11. Several other charges including aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault are to be dismissed.
    
Kuebler pleaded guilty to grabbing a hat from an 11-year-old girl as she walked home from school last October, causing her to chase him into an alley where he assaulted and raped her. Kuebler was 15 at the time, but the case was moved to adult court.
