PRINCETON—The attorney for James Allen, the Washington van driver charged with multiple felony charges stemming from an Interstate 69 crash in September that resulted in the death of two and injury to 22 other passengers, plans to file a motion seeking a change of venue from Gibson County.
Daniel Moon, who is Allen's court-appointed defense counsel, told Gibson Superior Court Judge Earl Penrod in a Thursday hearing that he expects to file the motion in a week or so. Gibson County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Sharon Werne said she expects to contest the motion. Judge Penrod set a 10 a.m. Jan. 6 hearing for argument on that motion and other issues.
