A number of defendants opted to waive their right to a preliminary hearing before District Judge Steven Bayer, Tamaqua, last week.
All will now have their cases heard in Schuylkill County court, Pottsville.
William Brown, 53, of 28 Nescopec St., Tamaqua, will face trial on charges of making terroristic threats, harassment and disorderly conduct. The charges stem from a May 30, 2011, incident and were filed by Tamaqua Patrolman Karl Harig.
Brown was released on his own recognizance.
