(WOWK-TV) WOWK has been the only news outlet following every new development in the case of Jared Marcum, the Logan County, West Virginia student who was suspended, arrested and is now facing an obstruction charge after refusing to change his NRA shirt at school. On Monday morning, June 24, Jared’s case took yet another turn.
Nearly two weeks before Jared, the 14-year-old at the center of the “T-Shirt Control Controversy”, was scheduled to be back in court, he found himself inside of the Logan County Courthouse for an emergency gag order hearing requested by prosecutors Christopher White and Sabrina Deskins.
“We were here because the prosecution filed a motion for a gag order,” Jared’s attorney Ben White said. “My opinion is because, seemingly, they want to take it out of the court of public opinion.”
