A Jim Thorpe man accused of sexually assaulting two children has withdrawn his guilty plea in Schuylkill County court.
President Judge William Baldwin on March 19 agreed to allow Michael Christopher Gallagher, 33, of 85 W. 13th St., to withdraw the plea. The case may now go to trial.
According to testimony at a preliminary hearing in March 2013, the case stems from two series of incidents. The first incidents happened between May 1, 2009 and March 1, 2011. The second case occurred between Oct. 10, 2010, to March 2011.
