Jury Selection Begins in Southern Humboldt Man’s Trial for Criminal Threats
Jury selection in the trial of Daniel Dobbs, a Southern Humboldt man, began today at 8:30 a.m. Dobbs, you’ll remember, was the man who claimed to own the Gingerbread Mansion in Ferndale. He helped himself to wine and began searching the refrigerator and kitchen cupboards before being escorted to the Humboldt County Jail for burglary. He was also arrested during a recent sweep of Southern Humboldt for several incidents including for a warrant related to making criminal threats in 2013.
Today’s court proceedings are for a trial regarding the criminal threats charge, says John Chiv, local court blogger.
