HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pennsylvania — A central Pennsylvania man won't act as his own attorney when he stands trial on charges he used a prison computer to email threats to bomb the county courthouse and disrupt the water supply
Twenty-five-year-old Adam Hardin could face trial as soon as August on charges he sent the threats in October 2013, while incarcerated in another case.
Although the threats were hoaxes, the Altoona Water Authority warned thousands of customers not to use tap water for about two days.
The trial has been delayed by defense concerns over whether an impartial jury can be selected and, most recently, because Hardin wanted to act as his own attorney.
But the Altoona Mirror (http://bit.ly/1eUW53M ) reports Hardin told a Blair County judge last week that he's satisfied with his attorney, and had merely been frustrated by repeated delays in his case.
