On July 8, 2020, the rape and kidnapping charges were dismissed because of a uncooperative victim.
Riddick entered no contest pleas to the remaining charges.
He was sentenced to seven years in prison with all time suspended and ordered to register as a meth offender.
Riddick was also sentenced to a one year suspended sentence in the county jail on a protective order violation.
