SPENCER -- According to court documents, a jury trial scheduled for a former City of Brazil employee, scheduled for Monday, was canceled.
Court documents show the jury trial for former Brazil Clerk-Treasurer Tracy Webster was canceled Sept. 28.
According to the documents, a change of plea hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 23, at 3 p.m.
It had been scheduled for 9 a.m., Monday, with Judge Frank Nardi presiding.
According to documents, the Clay County Circuit Court received a fax Sept. 26, from defense counsel asking for a motion of continuance for the trial.
Documents show the court granted the request upon receipt of a hard copy from defense counsel.
At that time, the court would then reschedule a trial date for plea/sentencing hearing.
An initial hearing had been scheduled for March 2012, but according to court documents, it was rescheduled after defense counsel filed a motion for continuance.
Webster faces formal charges of class C felony Forgery and three counts of class D felony Theft.
The allegations stem from a five-month investigation between the Indiana State Police Criminal Investigation Division and the Indiana State Board of Accounts.
The probable cause affidavit from the case alleged Webster was involved in a total of $19,550.54 of unauthorized vendor payments, in addition to overpayment of compensation and/or benefits on numerous occasions between May 4, 2007, and Nov. 21, 2008, while employed in the Brazil City Clerk-Treasurer office.
The case was venued to Owen County after Clay County Prosecutor B. Lee Reberger and Webster's defense counsel came to an agreement on terms for a transfer.
