Karen Epperly, 49, of Idyllwild, who was charged with embezzlement from Community Lumber in December 2013, will have a trial in July.
Epperly initially pleaded guilty in August and awaited a probation report filed in September. At the Sept. 19 sentencing hearing, the court announced it had read the probation report and she was not eligible for probation.
At that hearing, Epperly then withdrew her guilty plea and entered a plea of not guilty instead.
After several trial conferences, Epperly continued to maintain her not guilty plea. At the Jan. 30 information arraignment, both the prosecutor and defense announced they were prepared for a trial. Judge Mark Mandio then set July 20 as the starting day for the trial.
