Alleged Predator to Change Plea
41-year-old David Lopus had pleaded not guilty, but is expected to change the plea in a hearing today.
Federal prosecutors took over the case because it crossed state lines. Lopus is accused of trying to lure a girl into his vehicle near a trailer park in Conewango Township on May 24, 2010. On June 30, 2010, he allegedly tried to lure an 11-year-old girl into a portable toilet near the Sugar Grove Elementary School playground.
