A trial that is certain to go down in Liberty County history is set to get underway next week. After nearly five months since his arrest, suspended Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch is due to get his day in court.
Jury selection begins Monday in the Liberty County Courthouse with the trial expected to start Tuesday and continue through Friday. Judge William L. Gary will preside.
As previously reported, Finch, 50, was charged back in June with official misconduct and falsifying a public document.
According to FDLE, investigators allege that Finch destroyed or removed official arrest documents from the Liberty County Jail, making it appear as though an arrest never occurred.
