WINDSOR, Pa. (AP) - A man charged with threatening to shoot state troopers and blow up their central Pennsylvania barracks could be out of jail soon because no troopers showed up to testify at his preliminary hearing.

The York Dispatch (https://bit.ly/24PUFeZ ) says after that happened Thursday, a public defender persuaded a district judge to lower bond from $250,000 to $1 for 42-year-old Edward Law.

The Windsor Township man is accused of threatening Loganville-based troopers and driving with alcohol in his system on a suspended license last month.

Law can get out of jail if he completes a probation evaluation and posts the nominal bail. If Law gets out, he’ll be supervised by county probation officers.

State police say a miscommunication caused a corporal to miss the hearing, which has been rescheduled for May 26.
