Jury selection in Donah trial to continue

PLATTSBURGH — The panel of jurors for New York State Police Trooper Trevor J. Donah’s second trial was not filled by the end of court proceedings on Friday.

Friday marked the third day of questioning of potential jurors by the prosecution, Franklin County assistant district attorneys Elizabeth Crawford and Gary Pasqua, and defense attorneys Brian Barrett and Lorriane White.

Donah, 33, of Plattsburgh, faces charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual abuse, both felonies, and five misdemeanors: two counts of third-degree assault, two counts of criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation and one charge of second-degree unlawful imprisonment.

He was found not guilty of first-degree attempted rape, first-degree unlawful imprisonment and second-degree assault in a trial in November 2013 involving a former girlfriend.

Jury selection is set to resume at 9:30 a.m. Monday.
