Former Valentine resident Gary Obermiller, 63, was adjudged not guilty on count number 6 (charging third degree sexual assault of a child) of a multi-count indictment; counts 1-3, alleging first degree sexual assault, as well as counts 4, 7, and 9 alleging child abuse, and counts 5 and 8 alleging third degree sexual assault of a child resulted in a hung jury on March 10 in Cherry County District Court after a more than 10 day trial. The indictment stems from incidents allegedly occurring between 2003 and 2005 while Obermiller was a resident of Cherry County. The court declared a mistrial, and has set a further hearing in the matter for April 25, 2017 in O’Neill.
