Ian Gulbin assigned new attorney

By Gary Libreatore

(WKTV) - Ian Gulbin now has a new attorney, and that attorney will try to help Gulbin get his guilty plea withdrawn.

Judge Dwyer had to assign an attorney because Gulbin's now-former attorney Kurt Schultz will now have to testify during an upcoming hearing to determine whether Gulbin's request to withdraw his guilty plea will be granted.

The 31-year-old from Bridgewater pleaded guilty to second-degree murder back on June 4 in the death of 13-month-old Brayden Gulbin.

Brayden Gulbin was found dead on Nov. 18 of last year in the family''s Bridgewater home.

Oneida County Court Judge Michael Dwyer assigned Gulbin Utica attorney Jeremy Alexander.

Alexander will now work with his client to come up with a written request to withdraw the guilty plea, which will include the reasons for the request.  That written request is due by Aug. 25.

The prosecution then gets two weeks to respond to that request.

Gulbin is due back in court in four weeks on Sept. 8.
