Federal jury seated in ticket-fixing trial

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A jury has been seated in the federal trial of a former Auburn police officer accused of accepting money for fixing tickets.

A jury of eight men and six women will decide the fate of Tyrone White.

Two will be alternates.

Testimony is expected to begin Monday before Federal Judge M. Harold Albritton in Montgomery federal court.

White and Auburn businessman Adam Floyd are facing multi-count indictments, alleging they conspired to fix traffic tickets and have other charges dropped in exchange for money.

He is also facing obstruction of justice charges for allegedly threatening a witness in the case and destroying a tape recording.

Floyd was added as a defendant earlier this year.
