Mary C. Davis, 51, of Dunlap was to stand trial on 16 felony counts of official misconduct and theft on Nov. 15. But the two sides told a judge Monday during an unscheduled hearing they needed more time to gather evidence and develop their cases.
The trial is now set for Jan. 10, 2011. Davis remains free on bond pending her trial. She is accused of taking money several times between 2005 and 2007 while principal at Charles Lindbergh Middle School.
The official misconduct charges all allege Davis "knowingly performed an act which she knows was forbidden by law," theft of government property. The theft charges carry a range of one to three years or three to seven years behind bars, depending on whether the amount was more than $300. Source
