Gert Boyle hopes to avoid a trial but the man accused of organizing a plan to kidnap the Columbia Sportswear founder in November refuses to take a plea deal; even though one of his accomplices pleaded guilty to several charges last week. Boyle's attorney Steven Unger says he doesn’t have any prediction. He’s hopeful Gert will be able to get through this without having to testify and that it will be resolved without a trial. Nestor Caballero Gutierrez, the accused ring leader, was animated and appeared angry during a closed-door settlement conference at Clackamas County. Jose Luis Arevalo will be sentenced after the other two suspects finalize their pleas.
