Judge denies new trial motion in Vaughn case

Judge Daniel Rozak denied a defense motion for a new trial in the Vaughn case, saying he’d admonished jurors to avoid all press during the trial.

Christopher Vaughn’s attorneys had said fallout from Peterson had left jurors prejudiced against defense attorneys.

But Rozak said any comparisons he heard between the two defense teams labelled Vaughn lawyer George Lenard as “the 2nd coming of Clarence Darrow while the others were like a rerun of Mo Howard in “disorder in the court” he said, referring to Peterson’s defense team “antics.”

The Oswego man is convicted of killing his wife and three children five years ago.
