Settlement Being Discussed In Terry Case

A settlement being discussed in a criminal sex assault case filed against an Aledo man. That information revealed this morning during a pre-trial conference for 20 year old Gunner Terry. His legal representation also indicated the possibility of “not guilty by the reason of insanity”. A judge ordered Terry’s sanity to be evaluated in July. Terry faces five Class X felonies stemming from alleged incidents involving two children under the age of 13. He was arrested in April and remains in custody at the Mercer County Jail on $250,000 bond with another pre-trial conference scheduled for September 19th. Class X felonies are punishable by 6-to-30 years in prison upon conviction.
