William Minore heading to trial on taser charges in Grand Traverse County

William Minore (yellow shirt) will be heading to trial in Grand Traverse County on two charges of possession of a taser.

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- A man once accused of robbing three northern Michigan banks is now going to trial in a different case.

William Minore entered a Grand Traverse County court room Friday for his final conference on two charges for possession of a taser.

Minore left before his name was called.

With no plea deal on the table, Minore's lawyer told the judge that Minore is ready to go to trial.

The charges stem from 2016 when Minore was arrested in connection to three bank robberies and tasers were found in his van.

After serving nearly a year and a half in jail, the bank robbery charges were dropped.

Minore's lawyer is confident he won't serve any more time because of that time served.

"I don't expect him to spend any time in jail, it's all going to be credited, so no matter what happens he's not going to spend another day in jail," said Minore's lawyer, Bill Burdette.

Burdette said the one day trial is scheduled for July 18.

On Monday, Minore will go to Leelanau County court to ask the judge for his possessions after he was charged for robbing a bank there in 2016.
