DOWNTOWN JACKSON — The criminal trial for former Madison County Sheriff David Woolfork begins. Prosecutors and Woolfork’s defense team selected 15 impartial people from 200 potential jurors. Of the 15 selected, 11 are women, four are men. Two of the selected jurors are African American, and three will serve as alternates in the trial. Woolfork was indicted last December on counts of attempted aggravated sexual battery and Domestic Assault, misdemeanor. Both charges stem from the Oct. 10, 2013 incident involving his mistress Deputy Sharon Sangster at her home in west Jackson. The trial is expected to last three days. WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News will have continuing coverage throughout the entire trial.
