HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - An exotic dancer accused of dragging a man to his death pled guilty Thursday in Butler County Court.

Kristina Hensley, 35, pled guilty to the lesser charge of first degree involuntary manslaughter and failure to stop after an accident.

Hensley was accused of killing Jae Cho after performing a private dance for him at his Monroe home in August.

Hensley claimed Cho touched her inappropriately and then jumped in front of her car when she left the house. She dragged him under her SUV for about two miles before she stopped at a gas station and realized what happened.

Hensley faces three to ten years in prison for Cho's death. Her sentencing will be April 7, 2011. Cho's family was involved in the drafting of the plea deal. According to prosecutors, Cho's family wanted Hensley to take responsibility for her actions.
