The lawyer for a Bethel Township, Miami County, man charged with rape is asking to withdraw from the case. Michael Brush of Dayton filed the motion in the case against Gary Grubb, 52, in Miami County Common Pleas Court.
Grubb recently was found competent to stand trial. He is accused of sexual contact with a person under age 13 between September and December 2011. He has pleaded not guilty.
In the motion, Brush states he has obtained information that would not allow him to represent Grubb effectively at trial. He further states that Grubb has failed to comply with a fee agreement. He asks the court to appoint a lawyer for Grubb if he is unable to afford one.
