Defense seeks to move trial out of county in Gogin case
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The legal defense for a Monroe man facing multiple charges of sexual assault against two young girls has filed a motion to move an impending trial away from Green County. The motion, filed on Oct. 29, stated that coverage by area news outlets, including The Monroe Times, has "eviscerated" the presumption of the defendant's innocence in the eyes of the public and that the trial should therefore be held in a different, non-adjacent, county. The defendant, Greg P. Gogin, 55, is charged with seven counts of sexual assault and related offenses against two underage girls.
