Gainesville Pastor to Go Before Jury
The Gainesville pastor, whose Koran trial ignited deadly riots, awaited a jury of his own Thursday night. Friday morning, jurors in Michigan will decide whether Terry Jones will have to pay a "peace bond" for his planned protest. Prosecutors said the bond is needed to cover extra security costs. Following Jones' called off International Koran Burning Day, local leaders said they would bill him for security. Sheriff Sadie Darnell did for more than 65-thousand dollars. 7 months later, the city still hasn't sent a bill.
"That matter is being reviewed by the city attorney's office. There are a number of issues they are taking a look at. These things obviously take some time. We want to make sure that we look at all of the aspects before we make a decision on how to proceed," said Bob Woods with the city.
