A jury trial for an Arkansan accused of defrauding more than $40,000 from the city of Bryant was scheduled to take place on Dec. 5.
However, on Monday, Saline County Circuit Judge Robert Herzfeld approved a motion from attorney Parker Jones to continue the trial to 9 a.m. on March 26 and 27.
Jones is serving as legal counsel for 38-year-old Christopher Dwayne Barnes, who is facing a charge of theft of property in Saline County.
The Benton Freshman Panthers, behind 13 points from Jackson Oulch and 12 points from Clay Anderson, defeated Cabot North 39-21 Monday night. The win improves Bentonâ€™s season record to 7-1.
â€śItâ€™s always nice to win the home opener,â€ť Panther Head Coach David Torres said. â€śWe got off to a bit of a slow start, but weâ€™re able to speed up the game halfway through the first quarter. Cabot North is a big, long team and we were able to get them into an up-tempo game.â€ť
