TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Wabash Township Trustee Jennifer Teising plans to waive her right to a jury trial.
Her attorney told a judge Friday Teising will instead seek a bench trial. The bench trial is set for December 13th and 14th.
Teising's attorney also plans to file a motion to dismiss her 21 counts of felony theft, telling News 18 "the law doesn't support the prosecution's claims."
As News 18 previousy reported, a grand jury indicted Teising on allegations she lived outside the township for nearly a year while still collecting a salary, amounting to theft from the township.
