A Monday court appearance by Sheldon Mayor Rob Sewell, who faces 21 counts of forgery in Vernon County, resulted in a continuance of the scheduled pre-trial conference to 9 a.m., Dec. 20.
The charges Sewell faces relate to 21 checks written on the account of 97-year-old John Young, between April 2008 and August 2010, varying in amounts from $61 to $50,000 and totaling more than $150,000, according to calculations based on the list of individual charges.
Sewell has pleaded not guilty. He is represented by local attorney Nicholas Swischer.
