The embattled auditor of La Salle County has a trial date.
A judge and not a jury will decide the fate of 53-year-old Jody Wilkinson of Sandwich. Her bench trial is set to start next Friday morning. Wilkinson is charged with 11 felony counts of official misconduct and theft dealing with an alleged overtime pay scheme. She’s out of jail after posting bond right after being charged in November.
Two of her deputy auditors are due back in court this week as they also face felony theft charges.
