Neosho lawyer Ross Rhoades signed on today as former Jasper County deputy Milton Ganz's attorney, according to Jasper County Circuit Court records.
Ganz was charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and unlawful use of a weapon.
The arrest was made following a confrontation with Joplin police officers at his home. Ganz' wife called police saying her husband had a gun and was talking about committing suicide. When the police arrived, Ganz aimed the weapon at them before being shot.
