Email News Alerts

Calling it a "high profile case for Hubbard County," a district judge ordered the trial of a man accused of assaulting a state trooper moved to Cass County.


Judge John Smith on Friday also imposed a gag order on Elijah Lee Knowles, 26, of Akekley, to prevent further postings about his case on any social media sites.

Last week the Enterprise reported that Knowles found humor at his last court hearing and posted his thoughts on an open Facebook wall.
