“This defendant has been on different radar screens for a period of time,” Grosky said.
The list of crimes against Gray is 13 pages long, and includes an armed robbery conviction in 1996, Grosky said.
After Grosky only spoke of the single sexual encounter between the two men, Gray disputed Grosky’s account of what happened.
“The prosecutor didn’t properly reflect the matter at hand,” said Gray, who was shackled. “This is someone I had an ongoing relationship with for at least six months.”
Gray told Korbey he was a paralegal who worked for two lawyer’s offices in the Springfield area and was going to school full time. Gray said he had lent the Salem man money for drug purchases and only wanted to be repaid.
“I did not attempt to steal anything from him,” Gray said.
Gray is being held in the county jail and is scheduled to return to court May 20 for a probable cause hearing.
