No new sentencing date has been set for a Greencastle woman accused of stealing funds from the accountant she worked for.
Tamera S. Wade, 45, was charged with Class D felony theft and surrendered herself to the court on Sept. 16. She entered a guilty plea to the charge the next day, and was released on her own recognizance. Her sentencing was set for Oct. 16.
Wade admitted taking the funds during an interview with Indiana State Police Detective Scott Stockton in early August, court records said.
On Sept. 30, Judge Matthew Headley recused himself from the case and requested that Judge Thomas Milligan of Montgomery County Circuit Court assume jurisdiction. At that time, the sentencing was taken off the court calendar, court documents said.
Several days later, Milligan accepted the case, which will still be heard in Putnam County Circuit Court. Milligan has yet to set a new sentencing date.
The exact amount of money Wade is accused of stealing from her employer, Edward Wood & Co. Inc. of Greencastle, has not been revealed, although Stockton said it was "significant."
Putnam County Prosecutor Tim Bookwalter said it was safe to say Wade was accused of stealing several thousand dollars.
Wade had been employed by Wood & Co. since 1988. She was terminated on July 28.
Wade has no prior criminal record.
