A Stonewall woman accused of embezzling nearly $200,000 from her employer will return to court in mid-February.
Robin L. Logan’s preliminary hearing was originally set for Friday, but it has been postponed until 8:30 a.m. Feb. 19, said assistant district attorney Matthew Welde.
Welde said both sides agreed to the delay so they could negotiate certain issues directly instead of resolving them by presenting evidence to the court. He added that he could not discuss specifics due to confidentiality concerns.
Logan is accused of stealing nearly $200,000 in cash and unauthorized credit card transactions while she was the business manager for Dr. James Clark, an Ada dentist, according to an affidavit in the case. The alleged thefts supposedly started in 2008 and ended when the missing money was discovered in May of this year.
Logan declined to discuss the case with police, but she told her former employer that she had not stolen any money, according to the affidavit.
Logan’s attorney, Jason Christopher of Ada, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
