NEW YORK (AP) — Bernie Goetz is headed toward a trial in his New York marijuana case after rebuffing a plea offer involving 10 days of community service.
A defense lawyer told a judge Thursday that Goetz remains uninterested in that deal.
He’s preparing for a trial in the Manhattan court complex where he was tried in 1985.
A subway shooting made him a symbol of what some considered self-defense and others called vigilantism.
He was acquitted of attempted murder but convicted of a weapons charge.
Goetz was arrested in December on misdemeanor charges of selling $30 worth of marijuana to an undercover officer.
