A pair of juries were seated Monday morning for criminal trials scheduled for later this month, including that of a southern Huntingdon County resident charged with a firearms violation.

Nine men and three women will hear the state’s case against Darrell Fleming, 54, of the Blairs Mills area, charged with the felony 2 offense of possessing a firearm when prohibited.

According to state police at Huntingdon, Fleming, who is represented by attorney Christopher Wencker, is not allowed to possess firearms due to a prior robbery conviction and is on state parole through July 2042.

Police say Dec. 13, 2018, a state parole officer stopped by Fleming’s Tell Township home for a routine visit and, after allowed inside by Fleming’s girlfriend, allegedly found three rifles in a closet. When Fleming arrived home, an additional firearm was allegedly found in his vehicle, police say.

Fleming’s trial is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 20.

Chambersburg resident Shawn Seville will stand trial on the misdemeanor 1 charge of indecent assault on an unconscious person, relative to an alleged incident at an Orbisonia home Aug. 5, 2018.

State police at Huntingdon allege that while staying over at the home, Seville inappropriately touched one of the occupants while she slept.

Seville, represented by Wencker, is scheduled for trial Thursday, Sept. 26. Six men and six women were chosen to hear the case.
