The date for a jury trial has been set for a 21-year-old Mankato man who allegedly tried to run over a security guard at the Briargate Apartments in Mankato. In court on Wednesday, the prosecutor in the case against Miller Crawford said he was unlikely to offer any deal that was substantial. But the judge encouraged both sides to talk, saying “most people haven’t started to sweat”. The judge has said he would not be interested in a plea deal after the November 30th pre-trial hearing for the case. Crawford’s trial has been scheduled to start on January 2nd.
