The case against a Winchester woman accused of embezzling more than $24,000 from The Winchester Sun has been continued to Aug. 22.
Michelle Holloman, 38, made her first appearance Wednesday before Judge Brandi Oliver Brown in Clark District Court.
During the pretrial conference, Brown scheduled a preliminary hearing for Holloman on Aug. 22 at 1:30 p.m. She also changed Holloman’s bond from a $5,000 cash bond to a $5,000 cash or property bond.
Winchester Sun managers first reported the theft to Winchester Police in June.
After being interviewed by police July 19, Holloman was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking of more than $10,000.
Holloman was the circulation manager of the Sun. In the arrest citation, detectives allege that she accepted cash payments from customers, but the entries were deleted from the company system, and other collected funds were never turned in.
