Bankruptcy trial delayed for Buffalo County supervisor
The bankruptcy fraud trial for Buffalo County supervisor Richard Pierce and his wife has been delayed again. It was supposed to start today.
A District Court Clerk says the two have waived their right to a jury trial, but are not entering a plea agreement.
A bench triafl is now set for October 23rd.
The couple filed for bankruptcy in 2003.
They're accused of failing to disclose about $160,000 of Janna Pierce's income. The money was from commission on grants that she wrote in 2004 for Buffalo and neighboring counties. But, she didn't submit a bill to Buffalo County until 2010.
Still, the board voted to pay it. Richard Pierce sat on that board.
