The trial of Bellevue's former police chief on a gun charge is scheduled to begin on Wednesday.
John Stacey is facing a misdemeanor gun charge for loaning a handgun to Gretna's former City Administrator Colleen Lawry, who did not have the proper handgun certificate.
Stacey's lawyer James Martin Davis has said Lawry was capable of owning a gun, but she neglected to apply for the $5 county permit.
Lawry was sentenced to six months in jail in December on theft charges, and prosecutors dropped the gun charge against her. She is scheduled to testify at Stacey's trial.
Stacey was placed on leave last May for an unrelated case and retired later that month.
