Former principal seeks trial delay

HERNANDO, Miss. —  

Former Olive Branch Middle School principal Mike McCoy, who was indicted on conspiracy and embezzlement charges, has requested that his Jan. 14 trial be postponed because his attorney has a scheduling conflict.

The Commercial Appeal reports McCoy's attorney, Kevin Horan, filed the motion for a continuance on Dec 6.

In the motion, Horan, who is a first-term democratic state representative from Grenada, says that he must be in Jackson for a legislative session, and will be unavailable on the day of McCoy's trial.

No new trial date has been set for the 43-year-old McCoy. He was indicted in October along with two Olive Branch Middle School staff members. The three are accused of taking more than $10,000 from various school accounts.
