NORWICH – A man scheduled to begin his jury trial Monday worked out a deal with the prosecution while 60 potential jurors waited in the Chenango County Court house.
Jury selection was scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m., and dozens of citizens lined themselves up to pass through security and occupy the pews before the judge’s stand.
Mark Dexter was to go before the court accused of bail jumping. He was found not guilty of driving while intoxicated at an earlier trial and found guilty of driving while ability impaired. He had been wanted for a DWI and did not appear for court.
