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.
