PORT LAVACA - Nan Canion's pre-trial hearing has been reset again.
Canion was charged in June with embezzling from the Calhoun County Youth Rodeo Association. This is the third time her hearing has been reset.
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's attorney, William Patterson, filed a series of motions with the district clerk's office on Monday dealing with evidence. The hearing has been reset for Dec. 5.
Dan Heard, the district attorney for Calhoun County, said the hearing will be a chance to hear any motions or any other pretrial matters before deciding whether to set a trial date.
If found guilty, Canion faces from two to 20 years in prison. A fine up to $10,000 could also be assessed.
