Jury Finds for Gilbert on Felony Charges


October 11, 2017

On Oct. 5, Larry Edward Gilbert II appeared at the Valley County Courthouse to face charges for multiple crimes, including assault with a weapon and criminal endangerment as well as lesser charges such as criminal mischief with damages in excess of $1,500, carrying a concealed weapon, criminal possession of dangerous drugs, and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia, in relation to a December 27, 2016 incident on Glasgow’s south side. A Valley County jury found Gilbert not guilty of four felony charges, but did convict on misdemeanor charges.

According to sources close to the case, charges relating to partner family member assault were dismissed at trial, due in part to the failure of a key witness to testify in court.

Gilbert was found guilty of criminal mischief with damages below $1,499, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Valley County Sheriff Vernon Buerkle, Gilbert is being held at the Valley County Detention Center due to contempt of court and other charges. He is set to reappear in court on Oct. 16.
