Trial date set for Wilton man accused of putting obscene statue in front yard
A court hearing wrapped up Tuesday for the Wilton man accused of putting a 7-foot penis statue in his front yard.
Jamie Gagne previously pleaded not guilty to publicly displaying offensive sexual material.
He says he put the carving up as a sign of protest, after a dispute with the town over plans for his workshop, which the town said wasn’t up to code.
The judge set a tentative trial date of October 1.
The two parties say they hope to reach a resolution before that time.
