A former district judge candidate and his sister are charged with criminal conspiracy because of a June incident in which four doors to a North Huntingdon home were nailed shut, causing $5,762 in damage.

George Cardner Snyder, 42, of 13600 St. Clair Drive, North Huntingdon, and Shanni Sue Snyder, 40, of 2009 Luehm Ave., North Versailles, face a preliminary hearing on Nov. 2.

George Snyder is charged with criminal mischief.

According to a criminal complaint filed by North Huntingdon police, the Snyders' sister, Tammi, was in the Augusta Circle home on June 29 to move out because of an expiring lease.

George and Shanni Snyder refused to let Tammi Snyder and her husband into the home, police said. George Snyder nailed four doors shut while Shanni Snyder videotaped him, the complaint states.

Court records show Shanni Snyder formerly listed the home as her address earlier this year.

George Snyder filed to run against North Huntingdon District Judge Doug Weimer in 2009, but his name was removed from the primary ballot because he listed a storage unit on Route 30 as his residence.

Weimer has recused himself from the Snyders' hearing. An alternate will be appointed to hear the case.
