The trial for Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki on allegations that he misappropriated state funds was delayed again today. District Judge Valerie Adair this morning set a new trial date for Dec. 14 after some legal wrangling between Krolicki’s attorneys and prosecutors. The trial had been scheduled for Oct. 12.
The trial delay is due to expected defense motions to dismiss the case and the amount of time needed by prosecutors to respond.
The state attorney general’s office contends that Krolicki, while state treasurer, and Kathy Besser, his chief of staff, misappropriated about $6 million in fees earned by the state’s college savings program by not depositing it in state accounts. The funds have been accounted for.
