Booster Club & School District Theft Case Continued To December

The theft case against a former Mercer County School District bookkeeper and former treasurer for the Mercer County Athletic Boosters has been continued to next month.  44 year old Angie Dellitt of Aledo appeared this morning in Mercer County Circuit Court for a pre-trial conference with the matter pushed back to December 10th for a possible negotiated plea. Dellitt faces two Class 2 felony counts filed last August–one involving the Mercer County Athletic Boosters and the other involving the Mercer County School District. The count involving the school district alleges unauthorized control of between $500 and $10,000 with the booster club count alleging between $10,000 and $100,000. The counts allege she used the funds for personal use, such as hotel rooms, restaurants, meals and other personal items. Dellitt remains free on $30,000 bond. She is no longer employed by the school district and no longer associated with the booster club.
