CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Trial has been delayed until next year for a former University of Central Arkansas administrator accused of commercial burglary.
Jack Gillean was to have been tried starting Oct. 28 in Van Buren County. The Log Cabin Democrat reports that prosecutors sought the delay because they haven't yet received subpoenaed phone records in the case.
Trial is now set to begin March 10.
Gillean was chief of staff at UCA until his arrest last year. Prosecutors accuse him of giving a master key to a student who allegedly broke into professors' offices to steal test answers. Gillean faces five counts of commercial burglary, one count of fraudulent insurance acts and one misdemeanor charge of issuing a false financial statement.
