Gray was charged Aug. 14 with failure to stop-accident resulting in non-fatal injury, contributing to the delinquency of minors and furnishing alcoholic beverage to a minor. Gray entered a not guilty plea to the charges on Aug. 20. The case is next set on a jury trial sounding docket Dec. 4, when the judge may decide if the defendant is to go to a jury trial.
