WARREN, Ohio -

The city of Warren's chief lawyer is upset that a court hearing has been again been delayed for a city employee accused of stealing a city-owned lawnmower.

Thursday's hearing in municipal court for 57-year-old Dennis Griffing was continued as he hires a new lawyer to represent him in a petty theft case,

Griffing, an equipment operator in the operations department, is accused of stealing a brand new lawnmower from the city garage.

Calling the delay “B.S.” Warren Law Director Greg Hicks complained about the delay, noting that the city and the AFSCME union came to an agreement allowing Griffing to stay on the job until the case is decided.

If Griffing is convicted, he would lose his job.

If that happens before Griffing could retire, he would get no pension. If he's found guilty after he retires, he would still be granted a pension.
