LA GRANDE — Union County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Powers denied Ronald Lee’s request for a new trial after his conviction for second-degree murder. Now Lee is appealing Powers’ ruling.
Dean Gushwa, who represented Lee during the trial this summer in Union County Circuit Court, submitted a motion for a new trial. The defense attorney contended Lee did not receive a fair trial. After reading briefs and hearing arguments from Gushwa and Union County District Attorney Kelsie McDaniel, Powers denied the motion for a new trial.
