Ex-Seneca County sheriff, supporter slated for trial

TIFFIN - The former Seneca County sheriff and a supporter will stand trial Nov. 26 for allegedly stalking a dispatcher.

H. Weldin Neff, 71, and Dennis Smith, 54, are charged with menacing by stalking, a misdemeanor, for incidents involving former dispatcher Alice Dohner in 1996 and 1997.

The trial, which has faced repeated delays, will be held in Seneca County Common Pleas Court before Visiting Judge Judith Cross.

Richard Kerger is representing Mr. Neff. Former defense attorney Dean Henry stepped down from the case in April because he is a potential witness.
