A jury trial has been scheduled to begin June 26th for a Cresco man facing nine charges as a result of a 14-mile high speed chase near Ridgeway last March.

29-year-old Richard Dale Ogle has entered a Not Guilty Plea on charges of attempted murder, attempting to elude, going armed with intent, two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, domestic abuse assault, carrying weapons, possessing dangerous weapons while under the influence, and operating while under the influence.

All charges are a result of a March 16th incident when Cresco Police were called to a home in Cresco for a possible domestic dispute. Upon arrival, Ogle was holding a gun to his girlfriend's head. Ogle fled the scene and led police on a high speed chase while allegedly firing shots at pursuing officers.
