"I believe the trial will get out many of the facts that have been distorted at this point."

The man accused of trying to disrobe a Muslim woman outside the Meridian Mall in July has waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will stand trial on ethnic intimidation charges. Jonathan Deuel turned down a plea bargain Thursday that would have taken a felony charge off the table. His lawyer told wilx.com, "We look forward to the trial. My client maintains his innocence in this matter. I believe the trial will get out many of the facts that have been distorted at this point." In early August Deuel told wilx.com he tripped on a rug near the woman but never touched her. Stay with News 10 and wilx.com for more details on the case.
