Prosecutor’s Office Plea Agreement With Kevin Harper


YAKIMA COUNTY PROSECUTING ATTORNEY NEWS RELEASE — On October 10, 2012, the Yakima County Prosecutor’s Office entered into a plea agreement with Kevin Harper, under which he entered pleas to charges of First Degree Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Second Degree Possession of Stolen Property.

The agreement was reached after new information was obtained that led to question Harper’s participation in the February 16, 2011, home invasion burglary that resulted in the murder of William Goggins, Pauline Goggins and Elizabeth Goggins.  The new information obtained changed the timeline in which the time of death was determined to have occurred, and described activity observed at the Goggin residence on the evening of the murders.  This newly obtained information was not  provided to the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office until September 25, 2012, after the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office was contacted by a previously undisclosed witness, wanting to discuss her prior statement and her having been contacted by a defense investigator.

Further dissemination of facts specific to the case are limited due to the related and pending matters that are currently set for trial, as well as the Bench/Bar Guidelines.
