A jury trial for former BCPD Chief Terry Harrison is still scheduled for 9 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21, in Vigo County Superior Court Division 6.
Harrison faces allegations of a class B felony charge of Failure To Deposit Public Funds and a class D felony charge of Official Misconduct.
Stemming from 2008, the charges allege Harrison received and cashed a $2,000 grant check for funds intended to purchase car safety seats for children from the Indiana University Automotive Safety Program, but never deposited the funds into the official government accounts for the City of Brazil.
Geoffrey Creason is Harrison's public defense, while Putnam County Prosecutor Timothy Bookwalter has been appointed special prosecutor for the State of Indiana.
A pre-trial conference took place Jan. 19.
According to court documents, during the conference, both parties appeared before Vigo County Superior Court Judge Michael Lewis.
An initial jury trial was scheduled for July 2011. However, a motion to continue was filed by Harrison's defense counsel and a similar motion was also filed by the State of Indiana due to court calendar congestion.
Due to a conflict of interest with Harrison's previous career in law enforcement and his potential for being subpoenaed to testify in ongoing criminal cases as an investigative officer, the Clay County Prosecutor's Office, along with both Superior and Circuit Court judges in Clay County, are unable to participate in the case.
