Court date for former Princeville mayor moved back

Posted: Updated:
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -

A court date for former Princeville mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates has been moved back until September.
    
The Rocky Mount Telegram reports that Everette-Oates appeared in N.C. Superior Court in Tarboro in December and pleaded not guilty to embezzlement. A judge tentatively scheduled a trial date for Monday, but the date was pushed back to Sept. 8 after Everette-Oates retained new attorneys.
    
Motions are scheduled to be heard on April 7.
    
Everette-Oates was mayor of one of the first communities in the country established by freed slaves. She was arrested last August after a state audit found that she ran up more than $8,115 in questionable charges spanning two years and involving hotels, gas, a seafood restaurant and two trips to a specialty store.
