The pretrial conference involving a former village clerk arrested on theft charges totaling more than $30,000 from the Village of Oakdale was given a continuance in district court on Wednesday.
Megan Brandt, 31, appeared for a pretrial conference with court-appointed attorney Pat Carney. Her attorney moved for a continuance in her case to continue discussion of an issue that "may resolve the matter, but we're not prepared to do that today."
Brandt previously pleaded not guilty to the two charges against her: theft by unlawful taking (Class III felony) and unauthorized use of a financial transaction device (Class IV felony). The charges stem from actions taking place between December 15, 2012, and October 2, 2014. Brandt has been released on bond.
The pretrial conference was continued to April 29. A jury trial is scheduled for May 11.
Also in district court, Erik Dummitt was granted a continuance in his pre-trial conference on charges stemming from the theft of cattle north of Neligh last year.
