Inyo County Superior Courts have been asked to set a trial date for Dawndee and Kenneth Rossy, the Bishop couple accused of embezzling as much as $1.5 million from the Inyo County Health and Human Services Public Assistance program while Dawndee worked as a supervisor in the department.
District Attorney Tom Hardy said Tuesday that during a Dec. 18 hearing on the embezzlement case, he requested the courts schedule a trial for this coming May. The courts are now tasked with deciding if that is an appropriate time line for the trial to begin.
â€śThe court date has to be set in a court hearing,â€ť and the decision on the D.A.â€™s request could be announced as early as Feb. 3, when the courts are scheduled to consider a series of motions expected to be made by the defense, Hardy said.
