TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Wabash Township Trustee Jennifer Teising visited the Tippecanoe County Jail Thursday for fingerprinting and processing.
Teising was ordered to appear at the jail as part of a pending case on theft charges.
As News 18 previously reported, a grand jury indicted her in May on 20 counts of theft.
Prosecutors say Teising wasn't living in the township from June 2020 to February 2021 but collected a township paycheck every two weeks.
Teising appeared in court for an initial hearing last week, when she was ordered to visit the jail.
Sheriff Bob Goldsmith says jail staff took impressions of her fingerprints. She also changed into a jail jumpsuit so they could take her mugshot.
Goldsmith says she was released shortly after processing with no need to post bond.
Teising's attorney is expected to file motions asking the judge to change the trial's venue and appoint a special prosecutor.
That paperwork was not filed as of Friday afternoon, according to online court records.
