Guilty On Two Counts, Acquitted on 11 PDF Print
Written by Steve Frank   
Thursday, 15 August 2013 13:58

A Vilas man has been found guilty on two counts of Taking Indecent Liberties with a Minor, but acquitted on 11 other counts, including rape and other  sex offenses. Garry Glenn Cox, 55, of Campground Road in Vilas, was charged under 14 indictments after an extensive investigation into years of abuse of a girl. The jury got the case just after lunch yesterday, considering 13 counts after Judge Kincaid dismissed one indictment with a ‘fatal defect,’ finding Cox not guilty on the 11, and guilty on the two. Judge Kincaid sentenced Cox to 21 to 26 months on the Indecent Liberties case involving the young teen-aged girl, and another 21 to 39 months for the similar case involving her even younger brother—that term to run consecutively.  Garry Glenn Cox was given credit for 506 days in custody since his arrest.  Jurors Judy Greene and Wayne VanDevender, foreman, said that they came close to being a hung jury, first wanting to find Cox guilty of rape, but with confusing dates, no forensic evidence, it was impossible. Attorney for Garry Cox, Tom Speed, said the case would be reviewed for appeal.
