Judge Refuses to Dismiss Indictment in DSU Homecoming Crash

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A judge has refused to dismiss an amended indictment against a man charged in a crash that injured seven people at a Delaware State University homecoming event last year.
Gregory Ligon was indicted in January on one count of first-degree vehicular assault, six counts of second-degree vehicular assault, and drunken driving.
In June, he was re-indicted on similar charges, although certain elements of the charges the prosecution must prove were changed.
Defense attorneys said the changes were unfair because they were preparing a defense based on initial charges of criminal negligence causing serious physical injury. The second indictment instead alleges just negligence and physical injury.
The judge last week rejected the defense arguments, saying attorneys will be given time to prepare a challenge to the revised charges.
