Logan County , West Virginia
A former Logan County councilman is expected to enter a plea in connection with a scheme that left a downtown Logan building gutted by fire earlier this year.
James Gregory Glick is expected to plead guilty at 10 a.m. Oct. 16, according to a court document from U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
Indictments unsealed in September named Glick, the owner of the 317 Steakhouse in Logan, as the key player in the scheme.
Exotic dance club owner Guy MIller, insurance company operator William Jamey Thompson and Shawn Simon were also named in the indictment that alleged Thompson took a $75,000 payoff to inflate the value of Glick's building on an insurance policy by $950,000.
It also claims Miller and Simon set fire to the building on Stratton Street in downtown Logan back in February 2012.
Pretrial motions for Glick had been scheduled to take place on Oct. 17, but have now been canceled.
