Legal Action Eyed In Jump Rope Case

The homeless man falsely accused of trying to hang a nine-year-old girl from a tree in Northampton tells the “Gazette” he’s considering legal action against the Northwestern DA’s Office.   Last summer a girl accused Lance Gouvan and Megan Bonny of trying to hang her when she was jumping rope outside a residential program for children.  A grand jury refused to indict, and a DNA test came back negative.  The two were recently cleared of all charges.  Gouvan says the DA tried to make him accept a plea deal even though he hadn’t done anything wrong.
