WILKES-BARRE — A Luzerne County judge has denied the request of a Philadelphia man who asked that charges against him be dismissed or he be given a new trial in the robbery of a Plymouth Township strip club.

Judge Michael Vough on Tuesday denied the request by Kevin Williams, 31, who was sentenced on July 8 to 10 to 20 years in prison after being convicted by a Luzerne County jury in May of several related charges.

Williams claimed in a filing Monday he should be given a new trial or charges should be dismissed because of inconsistent and contradictory testimony during his trial.

Vough said in a one-page order that Williams had 10 days from the time he was sentenced to make any post-sentence requests and he did so beyond the 10-day period.

Also on Tuesday, Vough scheduled the trial for Williams’ co-defendant, William Gronosky, on related and unrelated charges to begin Sept. 3 at 10:15 a.m.
