PORT LAVACA - The case against Nan Canion, who is charged with embezzling from the Calhoun County Youth Rodeo Association, was reset for Sept. 29.

Canion, the former treasurer of the organization, was indicted by a Calhoun County grand jury on June 16 on a charge of unlawfully appropriating funds between $20,000 and $100,000 from January 2009 to November 2010, a second-degree felony.

A spokesperson with the Calhoun County Youth Rodeo Association said more than $50,000 was missing.

Canion, who is represented by attorney William Patterson, sat in the courtroom on Monday waiting for her attorney who never appeared, causing the hearing to be rescheduled.

Canion declined to comment.

If found guilty, Canion faces two to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
