WARREN Former deputy's trial continues

The prosecution said he was getting overlapping pay from the county and a school district.
WARREN -- Testimony is expected to continue today in the theft trial of a former Trumbull County deputy sheriff.
Dennis Day, 47, of Alva N.W., Warren, is facing two felony theft-in-office charges. Day, who worked for the department for 25 years, was fired in June 2000.
A jury was selected Monday in the courtroom of Judge Andrew Logan of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.
Day has pleaded innocent.
Chris Becker, an assistant Trumbull County prosecutor, said he expects the case to last about four days.
Allegation: Prosecutors say Day was scheduled to work for the sheriff's department during the day but was also providing off-duty security work for Bristol High School in the afternoon.
Prosecutors added that Day was getting overlapping pay from the sheriff's department and the school for one hour each day.
The prosecution presented several witnesses Monday and Tuesday, including officials from the sheriff's department and Bristol schools.
According to the indictments, the first charge of theft in office states the acts took place April 18, 1999, through May 29, 1999; the second count states the acts took place from Sept. 5, 1999, to Feb. 20, 2000.
Suspension: Sheriff Thomas Altiere has noted that this is the second time he had trouble with Day's doing part-time work while on duty.
The prosecutor's office decided in 1998 that no criminal act took place when Day worked private security for a department store while on duty.
Prosecutors said at that time that Day was scheduled to start a 10-hour shift for the county at 2 p.m. but instead would start when he got off work at Dillard's Department Store. He would still work his 10 hours, officials said.
Day was suspended for 60 days without pay in that case, Altiere said.
