June court date set for accused embezzler

A June court date has been set for a woman accused of embezzling money from a Draper church.
According to court records, a preliminary hearing for Patricia Wilson is scheduled for June 15 at 1:30 p.m. in Pulaski County General District Court.
The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to determine whether enough evidence exists to send the case to a grand jury. However, even if the court dismisses the charges, prosecutors still can seek to have them reinstated by seeking a direct indict from the grand jury.
Wilson was a deputy commissioner with Pulaski County Commissioner of the Revenue’s office until April 17, when she was arrested on two counts of embezzling funds from Memorial Christian Church in Draper.
Pulaski County Sheriff Jim Davis said a preliminary investigation determined no funds related to the commissioner’s office are involved.
He said the investigation is ongoing and “additional charges are pending.”
Wilson, who is free on bond, currently is charged with two counts of embezzlement, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
