Former Pittsburgh radio reporter Rob Milford has been held for trial on charges that he brought a loaded handgun in his briefcase into a courthouse to cover a trial.
He is charged with possession of a firearm in a court facility and carrying a firearm without a license.
At his preliminary hearing Wednesday, his attorney, Wendy Williams, argued that the charges should be dropped because Milford didn't know the gun was in the briefcase. Milford, who resigned, has said the gun belongs to his girlfriend.
Milford worked at the station since 2006. He also worked at Fox News Radio and CBS Radio covering everything from hurricanes to the Iraq war.
