Though ex-Coopersburg manager Dawn Kresge was in court Monday and expected to plead guilty to charges of fraud, theft and receiving stolen property, her attorney asked Judge James Anthony for a continuance.
According to court documents, this is the second time Kresge's attorneys have asked to court for a continuance.
Kresge resigned abruptly as borough manager in February 2012, citing a new job opportunity. The resignation sparked an internal audit. In April, Tim Paashaus, the new borough manager and former mayor, uncovered evidence that Kresge allegedly had improperly used borough credit cards.
The audit reportedly found improper charges totaling almost $15,000 during the period from November 2010 to February 2012. Kresge was arrested in May 2012.
The new plea hearing is set for Jan. 22 at 1:30pm. Kresge is expected to plead guilty at that time.
