Commissioner trial postponed

June 12, 2006

Albany -- Dougherty County Commissioner Brenda Robinson Cutler's theft trial has been postponed. It was supposed to start Tuesday, but Judge John Crosby of Tifton granted a continuance.

Cutler's attorney is still busy with another trial.

Cutler is charged with 13 counts of theft and violation of the Racketeering RICO act. She's accused of hiring family and friends while she worked at the Albany Advocacy Resource Center in 2001 and 2002, and stealing money from clients.

The State Attorney General said the charges against Cutler having no bearing on her work as Commissioner, so she can remain in office.

No word on when the case may be rescheduled.
