California Sheriff Corruption Case Trial Set to Begin | app

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ā€” A longtime San Francisco Bay Area sheriff is on trial for allegations of public corruption involving his office’s granting of concealed-carry permits and costly mismanagement of the jail.

The unusual case against Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith is a civil proceeding seeking the removal of an elected official, but is akin to a criminal case, with prosecutors in a different jurisdiction to avoid the conflicts of interest. Jury selection begins Wednesday.
