Zurwell Trial Starts (Again) Next Week
July 8, 2009 - The Henry County Prosecutor's office will take another shot next week at bringing a former Charles A. Beard Memorial School Corporation business manager to trial on felony forgery and theft charges.
Amanda Zurwell, who worked for CAB for about four-and-a-half months during the first part of the 2006-2007 school year, is facing two counts of forgery and four counts of theft connected to her employment at CAB. Her first trial, which started June 9 in Henry Superior Court 1, was declared a mistrial before the end of the first day when attorneys were unable to seat a full jury.
The new trial date is set for Tuesday, July 14, with an 8:30 a.m. start time. As had been the case last month, Henry Superior Court Judge Michael Peyton has set aside three days for the trial.
Zurwell is alleged to have forged a $2,297.19 check payable from CAB to herself that she cashed, as well as another for $2,651.50 that was discovered before she cashed it. She is also alleged to have overpaid herself about $2,300 after taking over payroll duties for CAB.
The forgery charges, filed against Zurwell in April 2007, are Class C felonies that each carry a maximum sentence of eight years in prison and fines of $10,000. The four counts of theft are Class D felonies that could each result in as much as three years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Zurwell's case was first set for trial in September of 2007. However, since then, there have been nine continuances granted.
