Rape trial for Calhoun sophomore set to begin in October

More than a year after he was charged with sexual assault, Gregory Korb ’09 will appear in court early next month to begin a trial which has been postponed for months.

Officials from the New Haven Superior Court said Korb’s trial is currently scheduled to begin Oct. 2. Korb was arrested by Yale Police on Aug. 28, 2005, and charged with sexual assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree and unlawful restraint in the first degree. He plead not guilty following the arrest and was released on a $50,000 bond.

If convicted of sexual assault, Korb faces a prison sentence of anywhere from 2 to 10 years.

Korb’s attorney, William Dow ’63, was unavailable for comment Sunday night.
