Case drags on for last Gonos defendant

Sandusky Register Staff • Nov 12, 2013 at 11:10 PM

Sofia Skoura, 52, is the only remaining defendant whose case is pending. Federal Judge Jeffrey Helmich originally gave Skoura until Nov. 10 to complete her plea negotiations.

Last week, attorney Joseph Wilson filed a request for an additional 60 days to conduct a pre-trial investigation.

“Matter has been referred to Pretrial Services to determine whether Defendant is eligible for pretrial diversion,” Wilson stated in the request. Pretrial diversion is a form of sentencing involving supervision and programs where defendants avoid criminal charges.

This is the fifth request for an extension in the case.
