ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — Prosecutors want to ask potential jurors about an Alabama sheriff awaiting trial on multiple ethics and theft charges.

The Athens News Courier reports prosecutors have asked a judge for permission to distribute a questionnaire to potential jurors who could hear the case against Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely.

The state is asking to focus on specific issues in Blakely's case.

Blakely has pleaded not guilty to charges that accuse him of taking thousands of dollars from campaign and law enforcement accounts. His trial is set for March 9.
