NEW CASTLE — The preliminary hearing for Chastity Williams, former vo-tech assistant business manager, has been continued.

The new time and date are 11:30 a.m. May 8.

The hearing originally had been scheduled for Tuesday.

Williams, 37, of Union Township is facing theft-related charges for allegedly taking more than $92,000 from the Lawrence County Career and Technical Center through unauthorized overtime pay.

The alleged discrepancies in her pay were uncovered by a forensic audit that had been ordered by the center’s joint operating committee, which had hired auditors Zelenkofske-Axelrod of Wexford in October to examine records from March 1, 2010, through Aug. 30, 2013.
