Pa. sheriff's threat trial set to open
<![CDATA[BEAVER, Pa. (AP) -- Trial was set to begin for a western Pennsylvania sheriff charged with threatening to cut off a political campaign worker's hands and shoot an online news reporter. Beaver County Sheriff George David was charged in March 2013 with the incidents that allegedly began in November 2011. Earlier this year, he was put under house arrest and made to surrender 700 personal firearms after a judge found he didn't comply with bail conditions. David remains in office because county officials are powerless to remove him because he's an elected official, and state legislators, who have that power, haven't taken up the cause. A jury was picked to hear the case last week. Opening statements were expected Monday in the county courthouse, about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
