MIS-TRIAL IN HENRY COUNTY DRUG CASE

posted by Defiance Newsroom - 

A mis-trial was declared in a jury trial that was scheduled to get underway in Henry County Common Pleas Court earlier this week.   Curtis Otto of Napoleon was facing a felony charge of Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs.   The mis-trial was declared when a juror looked-up the meaning of ‘aggravated’  on their cell phone, when they were instructed by the judge not to seek information from outside the courtroom.               A pre-trial conference has been set for tomorrow (Thur.) to determine how this case will proceed.   Prosecuting Attorney Gwen Howe Gebers reports she will seek to have a new trial for Otto, if a plea agreement is not reached this week.
