Report: Court Date Delayed for Defendants in Gay Bashing Case
A new report in The Advocate indicates that the three defendants in the Center City 2014 gay bashing case, Kevin Harrigan, Kathryn Knott, and Philip Williams, will appear in court again on September 17th after they “asked for a continuance in court Thursday, as their attorneys work out the terms of a plea agreement with the prosecution.”
The three defendants are facing aggravated assault, simple assault, and conspiracy charges in the September 2014 attack on two gay men in Center City. G Philly reported in July that the alleged attackers were considering a plea deal.
According to the article, “Reports say the District Attorney’s office has offered all three alleged assailants plea deals but has so far refused to make the details public. It is unknown whether the agreements would allow the three to avoid prison time and walk free.”
