On Monday, Oct. 24, the second floor of the Auglaize County Courthouse was full of individuals who had been called upon for jury selection for the trial involving Thomas Alan Stinebaugh, 63, of Wapakoneta, who is currently suspended from his duties as Mayor.

Despite efforts to sit in on the process, the press and public, who are normally allowed to be present during jury selection, were, by order of the judge, excluded so that it was a closed proceeding.
