MANCHESTER - New Hampshire Motor Speedway executive vice president and general manager Jerry Gappens pleaded guilty on Thursday to a lewdness charge at Manchester Circuit Court.
Gappens, 53, of Bedford, was caught parked behind Hanover Hill Nursing Home with a 19-year-old woman identified as Kendra Johnson on Jan. 21.
Because neither Gappens or Johnson admitted to exchanging money, Manchester police could not charge them with prostitution.
A trial date for Gappens was set for Thursday, but he chose instead to accept a deal where he pleaded guilty to a Class D misdemeanor. Gappens was given a $1,200 fine, but $700 was suspended, according to a clerk at the courthouse.
The clerk said Gappens will also have to be on good behavior for one year as part of his punishment.
