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 43-year-old's attorney said there is a scheduling conflict and asked for a continuance because 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 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.
