Prosecutors Monday asked for more time to review witness statements, delaying hearings for three suspects in an alleged sex-for-hire plan.

The defendants – Somerset landlord Wayne Jay Beeghly, 65; Stephanie Ann Reedy, 33, of Jenner Township; and Tiffany Marie Wiedemann, 24, of Gray appeared with their attorneys before District Judge Susan Mankamyer of Boswell.

But Somerset County District Attorney Jerry Spangler said questions have arisen about whether certain evidence will be admissible in court.

“There are some evidence questions regarding witness statements,” he said.

State police said Beeghly refused sex with Reedy, offering instead to pay Wiedemann for sexual favors in the alleged incident in August.

After Wiedemann backed out, troopers said, Beeghly would not let her out of his car. Authorities said two men then beat him up to free the woman.

Beeghly denied imprisoning the woman and said he was robbed.

“I’ve never held any girl in my car, and I’ve been with a lot of them,” he said. “They beat me up, stole my money and left.”

His bloody car was found hours later outside the Jenner Township Municipal Building.

Beeghly was charged with criminal solicitation and false imprisonment.

Investigators said Reedy and Wiedemann planned to have Beeghly pay up front and then flee with the money.

They were charged with reckless endangerment, criminal attempt and criminal conspiracy.
