Joe Murray, from the law firm of Germer, Murray and Johnson of Hebron told the Journal-News yesterday that he has filed a Change of Venue Motion in Jefferson County District Court asking that a trial for his client, Dwain Junker be moved. Murray said their is reason to believe Junker could not get a fair and impartial trial in Jefferson County.
He said Junker is the defendant in a pending criminal prosecution scheduled for trial in Jefferson County District Court. Murray said the trail is scheduled to begin on May 26.
"As the result of an article appearing in The Fairbury Journal-News on February 25, I have filed a motion to change venue," he said.
