Zurwell’s Trial Rescheduled for December
September 5, 2007 - Next week's trial date for a former Charles A. Beard Memorial School Corporation employee facing several criminal charges for her alleged theft of school funds has been rescheduled for December.
The Henry Superior Court 1 granted a request for a continuance filed last month by the attorney representing former CAB Business Manager Amanda Zurwell. Her trial, originally set to begin next Tuesday, is now scheduled for December 11.
Zurwell was charged in April by the Henry County Prosecutor with six felonies - four counts of theft and two counts of forgery. Authorities claim that during the little more than four months she was employed by CAB last school year, she overpaid herself and forged two checks, one of which she cashed, improperly taking a little more than $7,000.
The theft charges Zurwell faces are Class D felonies that could each bring up to three years in prison and a fine of $10,000. The two forgery counts are Class C felonies that carry maximum sentences of eight years in prison and fines of $10,000.
In addition to the charges facing her in Henry County, Zurwell has also been charged with a single count of theft in Brown County. She is alleged to have stolen a check for $3,132 last summer from her former employer, Brown County School Corporation. A trial on that charge is scheduled for late November.
