Jury selected for former Sunbury corporal’s trial

SUNBURY — Ten men and two women were selected as jurors Monday for the trial of former Sunbury corporal Jamie Quinn.

The trial is scheduled to be held Monday, March 26, and Tuesday, March 27, before Senior Judge Harold F. Woelfel Jr. of Snyder-Union County Court.

Quinn is charged by Trooper Nathan Messner of state police at Stonington with with tampering with evidence, criminal conspiracy, theft by unlawful taking and theft of services.

 Quinn is accused of allowing her 17-year-old son to use a police department cell phone from which a sexually explicit message was sent at Line Mountain High School on Dec. 1, 2016.

The theft by unlawful taking and criminal conspiracy charges were added to the criminal complaint against Quinn, of Kulpmont, following an Aug. 23 preliminary hearing.

At that hearing, Senior Judge Richard Cashman, of Mount Carmel, withdrew a felony of failing to report a case of suspected child abuse to the appropriate authorities that allegedly involved a sexting incident. Cashman also dismissed two misdemeanor counts of hindering apprehension or prosecution (concealing or destroying evidence and providing false information), while holding the 45-year-old Quinn for court on misdemeanors of tampering with evidence and theft of services.
